It's Black Hole Friday! 11/25/2022

It's Black Hole Friday!

What is a black hole? A black hole is an astronomical object with a gravitational pull so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape it. A black hole’s “surface,” called its event horizon, defines the boundary where the velocity needed to escape exceeds the speed of light, which is the speed limit of the cosmos. Matter and radiation fall in, but they can’t get out.

Two main classes of black holes have been extensively observed. Stellar-mass black holes with three to dozens of times the Sun’s mass are spread throughout our Milky Way galaxy, while supermassive monsters weighing 100,000 to billions of solar masses are found in the centers of most big galaxies, ours included.

This image is an artist's concept of a tidal disruption event that happens when a star passes fatally close to a supermassive black hole, which reacts by launching a relativistic jet.

Looking for STEAM related gifts this holiday season?

Science experiments can be simple, exciting and fun, especially on Christmas morning!

We love National Geographic’s Ultimate Volcano Kit because it provides an exciting eruption that is reusable!

This kid’s science kit includes eruption powder, plus pop crystals which add an exciting sound to your eruptions.

This is a great hands-on experiment kit for any kid. The mold and instructions make it easy to assemble a sturdy volcano form and realistic paint colors give the volcano a lifelike look.

It also includes a pumice and a geode specimen so your kids can see real rocks created by a volcano! A full-color learning guide teaches about each rock and provides a wealth of educational information on volcano science. The learning guide also provides tips on different eruptions to try with common household items!

Do you remember those Ocean Spray commercials where the farmers are walking around in waste high water surrounded by cranberries?

Well, either way, here's a fun fact to share at your Thanksgiving meal next week!

Bogs are a type of wetland ecosystem characterized by wet, spongy, poorly drained peat-rich soil. Cranberries are typically grown in bogs, because they need “either natural or constructed wetlands soils, acid soil, ample supply of fresh water, and temperate climate,” says Carolyn DeMoranville, an associate extension professor and station director at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Cranberry Station.

These days, however, commercial cranberry bogs are manmade affairs—and they’re not inundated year-round. Most of the time, growers irrigate the plants like other crops.

They might flood the bogs to keep the leaves from drying out in the winter, and to facilitate harvesting. Indeed, cranberries grow inches from the ground, so to pluck them by hand is “pretty back-breaking,” says DeMoranville.

Once a bog is flooded, growers use machines to knock the berries into the water, and then harvesters don waders and corral the berries into a concentrated area where they can be pumped through a suction line and into a truck.

So now the real question: fresh cranberries or canned??? Tell us in the comments!

Make Your Own Lava Lamp! Here's what you will need:

Materials:

🧪A clean plastic bottle, try to use one with smooth sides

🧪Water

🧪Vegetable Oil

🧪Fizzing tablets (such as Alka Seltzer)

🧪Food Coloring

Instructions:

1. Fill the bottle up about 1/4th (1 quarter) with water.

2. Pour the vegetable oil in the bottle until is almost full. You may want to use a measuring cup with a spout or a funnel. You may have to wait a couple of minutes for the oil and water to separate.

3. Add a few drops of your favorite food coloring. Watch as the color sinks through the oil. Did your drops of color mix with the water immediately or float in between for a few minutes?

4. Break your fizzy tablet in half and drop part of it into the bottle. Get ready … here come the bubbly blobs!

5. You can even get a flashlight, turn off the lights and drop in another half tablet. This time shine the flashlight through the lava lamp while the blobs are bubbling!

Ready to try it? Be sure to post pictures and tag on Instagram!

What is the oldest known Oak Tree in the US?

🌳The Pechanga Great Oak Tree!

According to SoCalLocal, The Great Oak is located on the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indian Reservation that interlocks with the boundaries of Temecula.

The Great Oak is estimated to be as old as 2000 years. To the Pechanga people, the land and the Great Oak that stands upon it carry meaning that transcends physical presence. The Great Oak has come to embody the identity and character of the Pechanga Band: strength, wisdom, longevity and determination.

Although we work with kids a majority of the time, we have opportunities to work with many in our community.

Recently, we had so much fun with the residents at The Wellington at Lake Manassas.

Residents worked together and used their investigative skills in our Forensic Files class.

They analyzed and compared blood samples from multiple suspects and caught the criminal in the end.

Learning is a lifelong process!

Friendly reminder, all of our classes are age appropriate.

EASY ROASTED PUMPKIN SEEDS RECIPE 🎃

Ingredients Needed

-Pumpkin Seeds (you just removed from the pumpkin)
-Olive Oil
-Sea Salt
-Directions

🎃Step 1

To fully remove the sticky and stringy pumpkin pulp from the seeds, rinse them thoroughly. I find a colander works best and then pat them dry on a paper towel.

🎃Step 2

Spray your baking sheet with olive oil, spray the seeds with olive oil and toss or sprinkle with sea salt.

🎃Step 3

Place them in the oven at 200 degrees on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 5 minuets, stir them so they don’t stick to the pan. Roast for another 5 minutes or so until the seeds are golden.

🎃Tip: Use parchment paper on the baking pan to decrease the mess and sticking.

Enjoy!
