Marbled Paper – Colors, Chaos, & Chemistry! - Marbled paper is an easy do-it-yourself activity involving art and chemistry.  Drip drops of paint onto water thickened with seaweed extract.  The paint floats and spreads on the denser water, allowing you to create swirls and whirls of rainbows.  You can comb the colors into one-of-a-kind patterns.  Transfer your beautiful design to paper and voila!  You now have decor for your room, art for your fridge, or a gift for your family

Design Lives Here

Design Lives Here is a semester-long engineering initiative that equips teachers and students to participate in engineering activities within their school or afterschool program. Professional engineers serve as mentors to students throughout the year. Schools who participate are diverse – public, parochial and private – and have the option of making this part of their school day or an extended program. Each spring, all the participants come together for a day of engineering challenges, grouped in new teams to compete for prizes. Design Lives Here activities are inspired by the popular PBS KIDS program and website, Design Squad Nation
