dc.description.abstract With the desire to capture children's imaginations and interest in the field of science, "Science Day on the Greenway" was created as part of an Honors College thesis project. As an outreach program, this event aspired to educate the community in the three main branches of science (chemistry, biology, and physics), especially children grades K-8th. This event incorporated many hands-on science experiments that used common non-toxic household chemicals and was set-up along a half-mile span of the Cardinal Greenway in Muncie, Indiana. The experiments that involved chemistry included, Oobleck (an activity demonstrating phase changes), Gluep (to introduce polymerization), Candy Molecules (which exhibit molecular structures), and Bath Bubblers (to show a chemical reaction). Various speakers also attended "Science Day on the Greenway" to educate the participants on native plants, wildlife, and leaf structures. Based upon community response, this event proved to be a success and will hopefully be reproduced annually.
