It's About to EXPLODE!

As many of you know, I do clubs [link]. Most of my clubs focusing on improving English-speaking skills and preparing for FLEX exams [link]; however, J and I have recently branched out.

That's right, we have branched out to other types of clubs. Mostly because service is as much about the Volunteer as it is about the community. If all you do is try to meet your community needs, you may lose yourself - not to mention, you won't introduce your community to who you are and your interests (which may inspire them to try something new).

Anyway, J and I have started a science club. In Az, most science classes shy away from hands-on experimentation - which probably makes for a very long science lecture. Some of my fondest memories revolve around Andre's Honors Chem class and the titration tests we used to do.

Of course, here in Az, hydrochloric acid is not readily available - so J and I are trying out the small fun things. Our first club, we played with eggs and different liquids (such as coke, tea, and water). This last club, we used vinegar and baking soda to make mini-volcanoes. This week, it's oobleck [link]!

Any suggestions for next week?
