Story Time and Chemistry Lab:
Isabel Thomas presents Exploring the Elements: A Complete Guide to the Periodic Table
Prize-winning science writer Isabel Thomas joins Greenlight for a virtual chemistry lab featuring her new book, Exploring the Elements, illustrated by Sara Gillingham! Science meets design in this graphically stunning, comprehensive introduction to the chemical elements that make up our universe. Chemicals aren’t just things you find in labs and pharmacies. The ink in your pens, the soap next to the sink, and even the juices in a cabbage are all chemicals too! This means you don’t need a complicated kit to start exploring chemistry at home. Thomas shares her favorite kitchen STEAM activity that combines chemistry and art: COLOR-CHANGING PAINT! Join Thomas and together you’ll turn red cabbage and other foods into brilliantly bright paint that changes colors! Ages 8 & up.
