Allie Mac Kay was live from Kidspace Children’s Museum in Pasadena for the one year anniversary of The Robert & Mary Galvin Physics Forest. For the Goo recipe, look below.

Oobleck/ Goo
2 parts cornstarch to 1 part water
-Add food coloring of your choice
-To make it dance on the speaker (how we did it):
-Hook up an old speaker (without a grill or mesh covering the speaker cone) and amp
-Download a tone generator app for your mobile device and connect to amp
– Set app to play a tone in the 31.5-60 Hz range
-Rock Out!
*THIS IS MESSY, have a tarp, and buckets of water on hand to clean hands off. DO NOT POUR DOWN THE DRAIN IT WILL CLOG YOUR PIPES. When you’re done playing, scrape into a garbage can.

During the weekend of Friday, July 12 to Sunday, July 14, Kidspace Children’s Museum will celebrate the one year anniversary of the grand opening of The Robert & Mary Galvin Physics Forest, which was opened to the public on July 12, 2012.

The three day celebration will include feature live performances from children’s performer, Riff Rockit, on Friday, July 12, The Wildlife Learning Center, on Saturday, July 13, as well as local dance ensemble, Kids of Rock Theatre, and Radio Disney on Sunday, July 14.

In addition to the exhibits themselves, The Galvin Physics Forest has also led Kidspace to create additional physics programming for guests and school groups, as well as teacher training that focuses on STEM education methodology.
