Kids! Bring your parents to the “Coe Playground of Science” night at Coe College in Cedar Rapids!  The Coe College Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, Math, Computer Science, and ROTC Clubs will lead the fun in Peterson Hall October 24, 2019 from 6:00 – 9:00 P.M. in the evening.  There will be interactive demos that teach kids of all ages about the natural world around them.  We’ll levitate things, launch pumpkins on our trebuchet, do the “mentos and diet pepsi demo,” make dragon's breath flames, play with numbers, be amazed by strong magnets, make snow, see models of eyes and hearts, learn about the human body, see how chemistry allows us to create useful substances, make ice cream with liquid air, see molten glass poured at almost 2000 oF, and much more. Come have fun and learn about our natural world, all ages are welcome.
