Think with BINK: A Fort Detrick Alliance STEM Program for Kids (grades 1-5)

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - 4:00pm to 4:30pm
A visiting scientist from the Fort Detrick Alliance will teach us all about STEM each month!

June's theme: Playing with Polymers!
What do Legos, milk jugs, Rainbow Loom bracelets, sandwich bags, and chewing gum all have in common? They are all made of polymers! Polymers are groups of molecules that are connected to create something tangible (something you can touch.) They may be solid, squishy, sticky, bendable, or anything else you can think of. While many polymers are manmade, some occur naturally, as in the juice of rubber or aloe plants. Join us as we have fun exploring—and making—polymers!
