Maple Syrup Time Home School Day
Friday, March 14, 1:15 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Savor the first taste of spring--Sugar Maple Sap. Find out what makes it sweet (hint: photosynthesis) and how it is made into syrup. Take the Maple Syrup taste test challenge. Hike into the sugarbush to tap a sugar maple tree. See how Native Minnesotans, pioneers, and modern day Minnesota syrup producers have solved the engineering problem of collecting sap from the tree and transporting it to the place it will be cooked. Suggested ages: 1-6th grade.
