Last week’s MM kids class went so well! I had about a dozen kids turn out and we had the best time figuring out much electricity we could detect in fruit. We also made fluorescent light bulbs light up a bit using static and we had the best time playing with the plasma ball! It was a great class! Next month’s class topic is on tornadoes.
