12:30pm—1:30pm:  It’s our ‘Up Up and Away’ workshop where you will have great fun learning about balloons and air pressure.  Can you blow up a balloon in a bottle?  Have fun racing cars powered by air pressure and see if you can race balloons along a string.  $5 per child.  Maximum 40 participants.
