The Science of a Sandcastle and Secrets of the Shore. Join our very own award-winning sand sculptor Mr. B, as he leads this week to look at the beach under a different lens…as a detective! We will learn how the beach works from the tiny organisms in between the grains of sand to the crashing waves and water. This fun-filled week will be fueled by our own fascinations and curiosities. Through experiments, we will see how sand can “stick”, and what it is made of, and why Cape May is a great spot to engineer a sand castle masterpiece. Contact 609-427-3045Find out more »
