UNR and Silver City are hosting a science camp tomorrow from 10:00 to noon. Kids will learn about chemical reactions and the heat they produce in an event sponsored by University of Nevada Cooperative Extension.
Jim Barcellos of UNR leads his popular interactive science activities where children can don goggles and learn why there’s an endothermic reaction between vinegar and baking soda in a bubbling and fun activity on July 2 in Silver City. Participants will observe whether heat is created or extinguished using thermometers. The experiment will also help them learn about Celsius and Fahrenheit.
These free science activities are part of summerlong events hosted by the Silver City Community.
