How do you protect yourself from the sun? In this lab, you will use UV-sensitive plastic to test the UV-protection of sunscreens, sunglasses and clothing to find out how well they block harmful rays. Then make a UV-detecting bracelet to take home!
Tuesday, June 4 - Saturday, June 8
What's the science behind baking? Let's figure out how to make the fluffiest cakes and cookies. Mix up a bubbling batch of chemical concoctions with us in the Lab today!
About The Lab
Grab a pair of safety goggles and dive into a hands-on experiment at The Lab. In this exhibit, you’ll take on the role of a scientist and ask questions, make observations, and most important, get your hands dirty! Find out which sodas are the most acidic, what a scab looks like under a microscope, and what you can do to fight the flu.
While you’re here, engage with our team of EXPERT VOLUNTEERS and find out what it’s like to have a career in science.
Labs change weekly during the school year, and daily during the summer, so check out our CALENDAR PAGE to see our extended schedule.
We are so pleased to acknowledge the generous support received from the Biogen Idec Foundation in support of the Investigate Health Lab.
