Science-Sense: Pampered Potions (Chemistry) *


Science-Sense are weekly afternoon workshops that provide participants an opportunity to engage in hands-on scientific exploration while encouraging a curious and investigative mindset and invoking creativity and imagination.

In Pampered Potions, students will dabble in chemistry by measuring and mixing
carefully chosen ingredients such as sodium chloride, trace minerals, and other safe ingredients, to create personalized self-care "potions" such loose bath bombs and/or a relaxing foot soak. They will use glass beakers and lab equipment to mix the ingredients. Participants will make two potions: one to create a hypothesis and test in the workshop and one to take home. What will happen to the ingredients once water is added and why?

TASGM workshops teach students that art and science share fundamental and overlapping principles including observation, creativity, attention to detail, experimentation, problem-solving, and a commitment to communication and innovation. Creativity and imagination are crucial to designing experiments and hypotheses, and science can be seen as an artistic process when approached with intention, ingenuity, and a desire to explore the beauty within. The fusion of these makes learning more exciting and more tangible. Workshops include a range of activities that cater to various interests and learning styles, including an introduction to meditation to help students learn to sharpen their focus, increase attention, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being, all of which contribute to academic success and a more enriching scientific exploration. Registration is for each 90-minute workshop. All materials are furnished.
