Gwynedd Mercy University’s College Students and Young “Scientists” Celebrate Science Day

Gwynedd Mercy University’s science majors planned a special day for the young “scientists” of Valie Genuardi Hobbit House, Gwynedd Mercy University’s on-campus licensed nursery and preschool. The college students gave demonstrations about different scientific phenomenons that the Hobbits encounter every day, including a static electricity example complete with balloons and messy hair!

The Hobbits were then broken up into smaller groups of “scientists,” where they performed different experiments under the guidance of the GMercyU students. Some of the science experiments the children participated in included concocting a gooey substance called oobleck, and creating their very own lava lamp to take home from school!
