H2Olympics for Kids

Part of the free Water Wiser Kids series

Saturday, November 18, 2017 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Brodhead Watershed Association

How many drops of water can you fit on the head of a penny? Can water “walk” a tightrope? Can you make a floating paper clip sink to the bottom — without touching it?

From 10:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 18, kids and their grownups take part in the H2Olympics at Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center, Bartonsville. Educator Brian Hardiman will guide elementary-age children as they work alone and in teams at action stations set up in Kettle Creek’s Critter Room.

At each station, kids will explore different properties of water. How does water carry things? Absorb things? Change things? How does water “hold together”? They’ll imagine what the water might do in each situation, then test their hypotheses, observe the results, and sketch what actually happens. Was the hypothesis correct? Why? Why not? What would change the result?

The Indoor H2Olympics brings out the natural scientist in every kid. Grownups may be surprised, too!
