It’s time to put away the hearts and bring on the rainbows, gold, and leprechauns. We can’t wait to move on to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with awesome science and STEM! My son’s obsession is to catch a leprechaun. They did leave him gold coins in his leprechaun trap last year. So of course, we must have a full round of St Patrick’s Day science activities to take advantage of this fun day.
