Special ASL Science Sunday Program – “Snakes, Slime, and Science” this Sunday

8 07 2011

This Sunday at the Museum, from 3 – 5pm, we are holding a special event for Deaf, Hard of Hearing and ALL families called Snakes, Slime, and Science!  UT’s Pam Cook will be in the Museum rotunda hosting an assortment of fun science learning activities relating to polymers.  Even more special, she will be accompanied by her summer high school research students from LBJ High School’s LASA* and the Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) as well as two American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters!

Pam has led Science Sundays for almost five years in addition to working with TSD elementary and high school for four years. This Sunday she will bring everyone together for a lot of learning, ASL and fun activities with the biggest and most entertaining molecules in the lab: Polymers!


Polymers are fun to make!

To learn more about polymers, check out the Polymer Science Learning Center.  For some easy, at-home activities check out this flubber experiment, or this activity using milk to make polymers.

To brush-up on your ASL, visit Handspeak for the ASL alphabet as well as watch ACM’s own Josh Clements demonstrate how to greet one another and say Science in sign language:

Join us for Snakes, Slime, and Science on Sunday, July 10th, 3 – 5pm.
