Here is a fun Lava Lamp experiment you can try at home. Pour oil into a jar about 1/2 way. Add colored water. Water is denser than oil so the two liquids will separate. Start by adding 1/2 an Alka Seltzer tablet and watch what happens. The Alka Seltzer tablet creates a chemical reaction when mixed with water and creates bubbling carbon dioxide. Add the other 1/2 of the tablet for a greater reaction. #athomelearning #STEM #handsonlearning #hawaiichildrensdiscoverycenter

We made these beautiful fall trees in Discovery Camp today. Try it at home to help celebrate the season! You'll need twigs, fall colored tissue paper, glue and playdough. Stick your twigs in the playdough so it stands. Glue the tissue paper to the twigs to make beautiful fall leaves. Try this at home! #athomelearning #fallcrafts #hawaiichildrensdiscoverycenter

Happy Aloha Friday! These pom pom launchers are fun for all ages and a great way to stay active. 1. You'll need a paper cup (or toilet paper tube), a balloon, markers and pom poms (marshmallows work well also!). 2. Cut the bottom out of the paper cup. 3. Decorate your cup with markers. 4. Trim the top off of a ballon and knot the end. 5. Stretch the ballon over the bottom of the cup. 6. Load the pom poms into the cup and pull the knotted end to launch. Experiment with different materials and see what flies the farthest. Take measurements and record data for a great STEM lesson. #athomelearning #diy #STEM #hawaiichildrensdiscoverycenter
