About the class

Brrr — it's cold outside! And in this live, online class, we'll make it even colder! Join the Omaha Children's Museum's friendly frost experts for some frigidly fun science experiments. We'll create dry ice bubbles, make our own snow, and SNOW much more! (You might even get a chance to meet the museum's Snow Queen!) Science really is cool, and in this class, we'll show you why. You'll also have the opportunity to perform an experiment of your own with the list of simple materials below and the guidance of the experts from The Omaha Children's Museum.

Optional Materials:
· Baby oil (you can use vegetable oil instead, but the liquid will be yellow) · White paint · Alka Selzer tablets · Clear glass jar (could be from condiments, baby food, etc) · White glitter (optional) · Blue food coloring (optional)
