Come experience everyone’s favorite sticky sweet treat from the trees in a way like no place else. Maple sugaring is everywhere in Michigan in March.

Explore the science behind sugar solutions like syrup, watch a viscosity race, test your sweet tooth on different kinds of sugar, and find out what the water cycle and surface tension have to do with your pancakes. Once you’ve enjoyed the experiments, take a journey out to the woods to see the tapped maples and the sugar making in progress. Be sure to purchase some Michigan maple syrup before you go!
