Children enjoy science experiments at Marbles Kids Museum

Scientist Summer Cortinas, an outreach coordinator with N.C. BioNetwork, an outfit associated with the state’s community college system, guides children through a milk polarity experiment, using food coloring to show what happens when dish soap interacts with the fat in whole milk. Sunday’s science programming is part of Marbles Kids Museum’s guest-star scientists series. Toddlers and elementary-school children crowded around Cortinas’ tables to view salt and sugar crystals under a microscope and to learn how to make their own gummy worms by mixing a seaweed extract with calcium chloride.
