Illinois IGB

At-home activities for families and friends

May 1, 2020

As we all adjust to new health recommendations and wellness practices we may be finding ourselves at home much more than ever before. Here at the IGB we want to connect with communities both locally in Urbana-Champaign and across the globe. We will be posting fun and educational activities or suggestions to help enjoy this time together and to engage with each other, and to provide some opportunities to learn something new, experiment with a fresh idea, or just be curious.

Today's Activity: Social Squares

(Missed yesterday's activity? Check out our archive)

Today we're going to do our own investigation into how an infection, like COVID-19, can be spread among people. Scientists use powerful computers and special software to make predictions just like this, but we can do our own experiment with objects already in your house. Download our Social Squares activity and get started! 

What did you discover from the experiments you ran and the data you collected? Take a photo and share it with us if you like. Tweet it at us! Gram it our way! Put it on Facebook! Tag us with #couchreach (that's outreach from your couch)!
