No Peep-ing at this Spring Science Experiment

Syracuse Academy of Science elementary school students participate in a spring themed science experiment using Peeps.

Thursday, March 25th, 2021Syracuse Academy of Science kindergarten students in Mrs. Hartnett’s ENL class rolled up their sleeves and probably got their hands just a bit sticky with this hands-on, minds-on spring themed science experiment. For their science experiment, Atoms were tasked with using a traditional spring treat, Peeps, and describe not only its characteristics but predict if it would in fact float, as well as, if it would dissolve in water, vinegar or olive oil. The unanimous favorite characteristic was the squishiness of the Peeps. This science experiment was a perfect way to kick-off spring and Spring and Spring Recess.
