SAN ANTONIO – After doing science experiments in the KSAT News studio for over a year, it’s time to take Kaiti’s Science Lab on the road! Meteorologist Kaiti Blake and David Sears visited New Braunfels’ Vermamendi Elementary on Wednesday for another live science experiment.
Kaiti and David - along with a class full of fifth graders - created model river beds on Wednesday and tested how some of the material in the river bed went down a hill. To view the experiment part of the video, click on the player above. To view a preview of the lesson, click on the video below.
