- Exploring Taste – Identify sweet, salty, sour, and bitter flavors.
- Potato Apple Challenge – What happens to your sense of taste when you plug your nose?
- Supertaster Test – Count the papillae on your tongue to determine if you are a non-taster, average taster, or super taster.
Kits are available now! Just stop by the Library during our curbside pickup hours and ask for the take and make science kit.
Sensory Sensations is a take-and-make program of science experiments and STEAM learning for kids of all ages. Each month from January to May, we will explore one of the five senses through a series of weekly experiments or projects. Most experiments can be done with items easily found at home, but we will also have packets available each month with the materials, printed instructions, and a list of related resources both in our collection and online.
