|It was a perfect New England October Saturday for the Cape & Islands Boy Scouts Council of America to have their mostly outdoor Wicked Cool Autumn Welcome at BSA Camp Greenough in Yarmouthport, MA.|
|My eldest daughter and I wearing our Science is Fun t-shirts working the ACS table. We had some leftover Wicked Cool Science Cafe glow sticks from last year. We'll definitely get more of these for next year because kids love glow sticks.|
|Volunteers from Green Briar Nature Center conducting chromatography experiments for the Cape Cod Science Cafe.|
|My daughter doing what she loves best. Being the "test kid" before all the other kids get there.|
Candy chromatography with M&Ms
Originally they had planned to use the peanut butter ones, too. But since we all know that kids have a way of ingesting things they shouldn't (we were concerned about allergies) so they crossed it off the sign and eliminated it from the experiment.
|This was the view from the dining hall where the Science Cafe was held, This is where the pumpkin carving and face painting took place.|
|One of our organizing committee members, Eben Franks, and his wife, brought along their cider press. This was located outside the dining hall door overlooking the pumpkin carving with a view of the lake.|
