NEW Free Take and Make Kits!

What colors are hiding inside a marker?!

We’ve partnered with the Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL) to offer “Butterfly Chromatography” STEM Take and Make Kits!

The free Take and Make kits contain a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math)-based craft that families can work on together. With the Chromatography Butterflies kit, families can discover all the colors used inside a washable marker.

While supplies last, families can pick up a kit at one of two locations. Beginning Monday, May 24, kits will be available at TCPL during open hours.

Starting Wednesday, May 26, kits can be picked up at the Sciencenter front desk, at 601 First Street in Ithaca, during open hours. The Sciencenter is also offering several of the previous Take and Make kits.

Thanks to the Cornell Center for Materials Research Families Learning Science Together program, and the National Science Foundation for making this program and kit possible.
