Exploring with Community Central

Check out this 4-H activity: Science Experiment: Seven Layer Density Column Project: Arts & Crafts, Food Science (PDF) (Purdue University) you can do with items you probably already have at home!

Community Central participants at Front Street in Portland have had a busy few weeks exploring density, polymers, and looking at iron content in breakfast cereal!

In Lewiston, 4th Graders finished their exploration of different forms of energy by looking at chemical reactions that produce heat as a by-product and how to build a static electricity detector.



We’re excited to see you next year in 5th Grade!
