July 14:  Water testing – there is both a simplified test for younger children as well as a more comprehensive test kit for teens.

July 28:  Soil testing – test the soil around Kelly House for the nutrients needed to make things grow.

August 11:  Water testing and soil testing – in case you missed it the first time around, come out and try our water and soil testing kits. If there is enough interest, we will hold a water-testing day the second Saturday of September as well.

August 18:  Magnets – come explore the world of magnetism! Makes things stay, make things go and find out whether or not nickels have any nickel in them…

August 25:  Science blowout! – come close out the summer season with an extravaganza of all the fan-favorite science events of the summer.
