Science Experiments All the Rage During September Virtual Programming

September 14th, 2020

The Arc of Essex County’s virtual recreation participants embraced Wacky Science Thursday programming throughout the month of September.  The group enjoyed making M&M  swirl art, identifying where their slime experiment went wrong, and even inserted toothpicks through a hole in a water bottle without making it leak.  The group’s new motto, after their fearless leader Candes turned her hands blue mixing the failed slime, is “all in the name of science!”

The Arc of Essex County is committed to providing dynamic services and supports by leveraging technology and practicing social distancing.  Our full virtual programming calendars are available online at
