Glass Xylophones

On Wednesday, Sandor Bodo from the Providence Journal made this fabulous video of our Glass Xylophones program - one of the many hands-on science activities that we offer in the FETCH! Lab. Check it out and see how much fun can be had with just a little water and some drinking glasses - it shows the value of giving kids simple materials and room to explore, and how easy it is to try similar things at home!

"The value of open-ended and creative play is that it enables children to explore a variety of creative uses of common materials and environments, challenges conventional ways to use materials, and gives children a sense of power, control, and mastery of their own learning." -Francis Wardle, PhD
