The city of Grove City participated in a Build, Blast and Grow Science Celebration on May 2 in partnership with COSI’s 2019 Science Festival. For two hours, families throughout the community came out to the Kingston Center where they built pasta towers, learned how to remove ticks from their pets, and made mini-lava lamps, to name a few interactive stations. Shown here are a few scenes captured at the event.
Grove City resident Matt Nelson helps his daughter Katerina, 8, make a skyscraper using spaghetti noodles and marshmallows. The duo said the height of their structure reached 20 inches, unofficially.
Millie and Kirk Holcomb participate in a demonstration about which types of plants are the most beneficial to waterways. The station that detailed the process of erosion was created by Linda Pettit with the Franklin County Soil and Water Conservation District.
Zion Polk is all smiles as she shows off her mini-lava lamp. It was made using vegetable oil and food coloring.
