It's all wet

Learn all about water

BRANFORD - Free hands-on water-science workshops by the Connecticut Experiential Learning Center and the Southcentral Connecticut Regional Water Authority will be held to give students in fourth to eighth grades a mini-education about water, from how to measure the health of a stream to how many marbles will make a cup overflow or sink a boat.
Workshops take place at the Blackstone Memorial Library and will benefit CELC’s food drive for the Branford Community Dining Room, organizers said in a statement.

Participants will be asked to contribute a specific food item to each session, the statement said.
On Tuesday, Dec. 14, from 1to 2 p.m. What shape does a water drop have? Can water be stretched? What does water’s surface tension mean?
On Tuesday, Jan. 18, from 1 to 2 p.m How many marbles make a cup of water overflow? Estimating predictions about water supply.
There will be a maximum of 15 participants per session. To pre-register and find out about the CDR contribution, contact Melinda or Maria at or 203-215-2317.
