Science Saturday

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Come along and enjoy a fun day with a great variety of science-based activities down at Queen’s Mill. This is a fantastic opportunity to sample many interesting activities with guests from science backgrounds to help you along.

Some of the exciting activities include:

Rainbow in a Test Tube – learn about water density and use sugar and food colouring to make a rainbow in a test tube.

Plant Doctors – look through microscopes and learn about how plants get sick and what we can do to help.

Chromatography Flowers – watch how you can separate the chemicals in felt tip pens using a solution (water) and take home a flower craft based on these principles.

Making Waterwheels – visit the Queen’s Mill Waterwheel to learn more about waterwheels, and then have a go at making your own and watch it turn.

All activities are on a drop-in basis, and visitors can move from one to another throughout their visit, doing as many as they are interested in.
