Balloon Science Night

6-8 PM; Fee: $2 per person, Members Free

Balloons are always a symbol of fun, and that's no different at this month's science night! You might think balloons are just for parties but actually, they are a great educational tool! Join us at the Elgin Public Museum to experience a variety of demonstrations centering around these colorful decorations. Kids will experiment with static electricity and chemical reactions. They will also learn how to make a balloon unpoppable, how to blow one up without using their breath, and watch balloon rockets fly. Bring an unwanted CD or DVD and we will show you how to make your very own hovercraft! No registration necessary.
