On our next encounter, the kids and I traveled to Xavier University where we met up with our mentors and equipped ourselves with goggles and gloves in order to explore the world of Chemistry with Dr. Mullins. Liquids boiled, flowers exploded, colors combined and evil gummy bears were dissolved as the ZooMates looked on with excitement and wonder.
I just have to say, I love this program. Being with the children as they build positive relationships, explore their community and delve into hands on educational activities is what keeps me so passionate about my work with Faces without Places. Stay tuned for more adventures; our next encounter will be at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens!
