ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (FOX) – Spring hasn’t arrived yet but the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is preparing for the season with its Science is Everywhere Spring Day Camp. Museum Director of PR & Marketing, Jennifer Hayden visits the set to discuss the upcoming camp and demonstrate how to create a color-changing goldenrod flower project.
Jennifer explains that goldenrod paper is an indicator that can determine if liquids are acidic or basic. Using ammonia, she demonstrates that when spraying the fluid on the paper turns the paper bright red.
While this experiment is a fun activity that you can do at home, there will be more experiments and activities including robots, pranks and more during the museum’s upcoming spring and summer day camps. Spring camps will follow Albuquerque Public School’s spring break schedule.
The Science is Everywhere Spring Day Camp 2020 will be held in one-day sessions from March 30 through April 3 and is for children in Pre-K through 7th grade. Sessions will include themes such as “The Fun of Physics”, “Spring into Design”, “Prankenstein”, “Robots are Everywhere” and more.
