Nov. 18 Water Wiser Kids Special Event: Explore The H2Olympics In Monroe County

The Brodhead Watershed Association Water Wiser Kids Series will hold an Explore The H2Olympics event November 18 at the Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center in Bartonsville, Monroe County starting at 10:30 a.m.
How many drops of water can you fit on the head of a penny? Can water “walk” a tightrope? Can you make a floating paper clip sink to the bottom — without touching it?
The H2Olympics is geared to elementary-age students and their grownups.
Educator Brian Hardiman will guide the students as they work alone and in teams at action stations set up in Kettle Creek’s Critter Room.
At each station, kids will explore different properties of water. How does water carry things? Absorb things? Change things? How does water “hold together”?
They’ll imagine what the water might do in each situation, then test their hypotheses, observe the results, and sketch what actually happens. Was the hypothesis correct? Why? Why not? What would change the result?
This indoor H2Olympics brings out the natural scientist in every kid. Grownups may be surprised, too!
The program is free, but registration is required.  To register or for more information, call 570-839-1120 or 570-629-2727 or send email to:
