Family Science Saturday "Dives" into Underwater Exploration

Lower School families and their children gathered at BB&N this weekend for another Family Science Saturday. For 19 years now, the program has been allowing students to explore different aspects of science with their families under the expert tutelage of faculty who are passionate about making science accessible and fun.

This Saturday's installment featured an underwater exploration theme, and families completed a series of scientific activities relating to water. Whether attempting to construct a boat from a small piece of tin foil that can hold the most pennies, building a "cartesian diver," or designing an underwater grabber inspired by scientists at Harvard and Monterey Aquarium, the hands-on projects stretched brains and drew smiles from everyone in attendance.
