12:30-1:30PM | MadScience of DC STEAM Demo
Ever wondered how the infamous fog effect is generated? You guessed it…dry ice! Not only is this extremely cold form of carbon dioxide good at fogging up a room but it is also used to illustrate several other cool effects. During this demonstration, children learn all of the chilling facts behind dry ice, in addition to conjuring up a few magical potions using the element itself.
1-2PM| Sun V Set Live Musical Performance
Sun V Set is the musical expression of Linnea Morgan, with the co-creation of Ethan Johnstone (of Night Idea, Deau Eyes) and Ethan Kuhn (of Fight Cloud). They are based in Richmond, VA, and have played sporadically together for years, cementing their project as Sun V Set in 2020. Their songwriting is grounded in nature elements and paints a dreamy landscape interwoven with siren melodies, mystical chords, and understated grooves. A spellbinding fusion of folk, mysticism, and self-reflection
