Explore scientific principles in the Library Kitchen – with slimy results!

Our STEM Kitchen experts have been busy developing a recipe for the gooiest, slipperiest, stickiest substance known to humanity and they want YOU to test it out in our Library Kitchen.

That’s right; it’s Slime Time, baby!

We will be exploring the scientific principle of chemical reactions and discovering just what it means to be a Non-Newtonian liquid. What a Gooey way to learn!

You definitely won’t be able to eat it; but you will be able to take it home.

One more thing, wear some old clothes, because this can get messy!

Earth Art Exhibition by Colour City Creatives

By No Comments

The EARTH Art Exhibition explores the CCC artists experience and engagement with their surroundings. The landscape we live in, here in the central west of NSW informs our every day, through each phase of the moon, each turning of the earth. We have what is rare in Australia, here in Orange we have the four seasons. Seasons changing and challenging us, like the fires of 2019, the ecological crisis of the earth and the worldwide economic crisis of covid, this environment is experienced and imagined by our artists and expressed in their art.
In paintings inspired by landscape, colour and texture, photographs that capture a moment of time, digital art combining landscape and imagination, weavings using local or found materials, pottery created in the textures of the landscape, glass works glistening with the colours of the seasons.
We are a group based in country Australia, yet connected to everyone here on earth, technology does that. Strangely Covid has brought everyone on earth a little closer together. Because right now we are all going through the same thing: covid, climate change, economic crisis and a sense of ecological crisis, all of our own making.
The CCC bunch love the adventure of living in Orange, the drenching colours of autumn, the gentleness of Spring after winter’s monochromatic beauty, the bounty that our earth produces and as a bonus we get a free trip around the Sun, every year.
