SOFO: Snow Science with Melanie: Children ages 3-5
Program Leader: Melanie Meade, South Fork Natural History Museum Education Coordinator and Environmental Educator
Cold temperatures make water vapor in clouds turn into snow. The snow falls to the ground. Sometimes snow freezes together more and changes into ice. If we could look at snow and ice up closely, we would see crystals that sparkle when the sunlight bounces off them. We’ll take a walk outside to look for crystals and gather materials to make our own sparklers. We can make snow too, using a little simple kitchen science. Materials fee: $3
Advance reservations are required. Programs free for SoFo members. Non-members: $15/ adult, $10/child 3-12 years, 2 and under free. Fees include free admission to the museum on the day of the event.
