Hands On! Discovery Center: Can You Feel the Pressure? Discovery Lab Program

August 17, 2021 @ 8:00 am - August 29, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Can You Feel the Pressure? Discovery Lab Program
Tuesday, August 17th – Sunday, August 29th
Did you know that you have 14 pounds of air pressure pushing on every inch of your body? Join us in the Discovery Lab as we learn about the properties of air and air pressure through fun interactive demonstrations. Watch marshmallows grow in a vacuum sealer, send fruit and veggie pieces flying through the air with our potato launcher, launch a seltzer rocket, make a popping CO2 experiment in a baggie, and witness a grown-up get vacuum sealed! Facilitated programs announced periodically throughout each day.
Visitation Guidelines
In an effort to keep our visitors safe, Hands On! Discovery Center strongly encourages all adults and children age 4 and older who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear a mask.
