DiaBuddies Online: Children's Session

Online

This event is for children aged 5-15 years with type 1 diabetes, we encourage siblings to join in too. 

Kitchen chemistry with Street Science

In this session, children will have the opportunity to explore the properties of fresh versus salt water and components of solubility as we combine different solutions. They will examine the density and properties of solids and liquids, and get familiar with removing heat from materials by making homemade ice-cream! Join us online for some afterschool fun and to meet fellow DiaBuddies!
