Mystery- Solving Science
This event is no longer on sale.
Your help is needed to solve mysteries at the GRPM on Saturday, February 25th! To do this, you will need to think like a scientist and participate in two hands on experiments. In this lab, kids will search clues to find out who stole a missing artifact from the Collection, using the hands-on scientific techniques.
Someone has stolen an artifact from the museum collections! The museum staff needs your help to figure out who did it. Luckily the thief left a note at the scene of a crime. You will learn to use a scientific technique called chromatography to determine the thief’s identity.
On top of this crime, there is a salesperson trying to sell their “Magical Copper Cleaning Product” to visitors at the museum for $1,000 a bottle!! We cannot allow this to happen! If we can prove that just a few simple household ingredients will work just as well, we can tell our patrons and save them from getting scammed! This will require you to think like a scientist and experiment to create your own magical concoction.
