Do you love slime? Believe it or not, this fun and gooey toy actually plays a big part in science and is called a polymer. Commemorate one of the first African-American female chemists, Bettye Washington Greene, by making your very own slime! You can make your slime glitter, glow-in-the-dark, foam, or maybe even a combination!
Have you ever stared at the TV or your phone too long, and can still see an image even after you look away? These “after-images” are a normal part of how humans deal with all the things around us. In honor of African-American ophthalmologist, inventor, and UCLA professor, Dr. Patricia Bath, learn more about vision and science by doing an experiment to test how fast your eyes can adjust to seeing different images.
