Bucket Towers

Collect all the pennies you can to get ready for this activity! The challenge is to create a tall and sturdy tower using only straws, tape, string, and a dixie cup as your bucket. After you design your tower, test it to see just how many pennies it can hold. Be sure to revise your prototype after to see if you can make it even sturdier!

Hot Chocolate Science

When doing a science experiment, we always have to ensure that we have independent and dependent variables, and a constant. At Girlstart, we believe that it doesn’t hurt if one of our constants is yummy hot chocolate mix! Follow the scientific process to see at which temperatures hot chocolate dissolves best. Hopefully the result will be a yummy treat!
