     Today at Chestnut Street Park in Pottstown from 12-3, Anna Johnson (a founding member of CPR) along with several local scientists, which included teachers from the Pottstown School District, led nearly sixty children and their parents through kid friendly experiments. Some of the demonstrations included how to make homemade polymer (silly putty) out of borax and water, and “hot hands/cold hands” , which explained the heats of reactions with chloride pellets, baking soda, and water.  While the scientists were doing  their presentations, children along with their adult helpers were mirroring the exercise , in this hands on educational experience. After the controlled tests were completed, hotdogs were served for lunch along with cold drinks and chips. Children were sent home with goodie bags that included safety goggles, frisbees, rock samples, pencils, and recipes for further safe experimentation.
