On Monday, June 5th we held the first DTS Girl’s Applied Science Club meeting. We had a great turnout of scientists-in-training and their supportive parents. Ms. Maltese and Mr. Mead led the girls through two hours of experiments, socialization, snacks, fun, and learning.
Our first session delved into the science of polymers. We made different types of edible polymer spheres. We used water and Gatorade mixed with sodium alginate into a bath of calcium chloride solution.
Quotes from the girls:
“The first session was really fun because when we mixed the goo in the water and the salt water it made amazing things”
“It was cool!”
“The laughter was the best part”
We look forward to our next session on Monday, June 12th immediately following school from 3:15pm to 5:15pm.
