On January 19, Diana Oppenheimer and Emma Reinhart will work with students to explore various chemistry experiments. Diana, a graduate of LOHS, is a sophomore at Oregon State University. Early experiments with things like protists (pond scum!) and the properties of water (bubbles!) were what initially led her to choose biochemistry and molecular biology as her major. During this science night, there will be four stations of experiments and children will take turns rotating through each station. The final choices will be "revealed" during our chemistry and mysterious potions night, but some likely possibilities include: an elephant toothpaste demonstration, making slime, exploding balloons with a baking soda and vinegar reaction, and solving a mystery by matching unknown solutions to a known solutions. Students will not take home a project from this science night, but will be provided with some "recipes" for recreating these chemistry experiments (with adult supervision) at home. The first session, for students in K-2nd grade is from 6:15-7:15. The second session, for students in 3rd-5th grade is from 7:30-8:30. Parents can sign their child(ren) up for this science night following the signup genius link provided in the weekly OCE Hotsheet. Parents who are willing to volunteer to assist during science night are given early access to the signup link to ensure a spot in this very popular activity. No science or chemistry background is necessary to be a volunteer!
