Presidents Elementary fourth-graders conducted experiments inside the Seattle Children's Science Adventure Lab to find out how much sugar is in a beverage on Dec. 7.

Presidents Elementary students experienced what it's like to be scientists Dec. 7 at the mobile Seattle Children's Science Adventure Lab. The students conducted experiments to determine how much sugar was in a simulated beverage.

"It was really fun mixing the chemicals and seeing what would happen," said fourth-graders Addison Kristofferson and BriAnn Beckley. "It was neat seeing the colors change from blue to red."

The Seattle Children's instructors also talked about nutrition and the students learned about healthy alternatives to sugar. The goal of the adventure lab is to provide students with a hands-on exposure to science.

"The students are using their critical thinking skills and go through the same steps a scientist would take," said senior Billy Roden. "It's great seeing the students connect with science."

The Seattle Children's Science Adventure Lab travels to schools across the state and provides innovative, hands-on science curriculum to students in grades 4 to 12.
