SOFO – How Strong are Seashells? Adults/Children Ages 8+

Program Leader: Melanie Meade, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Education & Outreach Coordinator

Explore the structure and function of seashells and compare the mechanical properties of toughness and hardness. See what a shell would be like if it were not so tough by trying to break shells that have been baked or soaked in bleach and comparing them to the properties of untreated shells.
