Join Walking Mountains Science Center on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. for the continuation of the Science Behind series. By the end of this fun, hands-on workshop, participants will understand the basics of how restructured, alkaline-iodized drinking water neutralizes acids, balancing our body and blood pH, which can help prevent degenerative diseases, fight aging and flush body toxins.

Participants will experience first-hand how restructured tap water can be made to have varying levels of pH, which allows for its use as a cleaning and disinfecting agent, eliminating the need for expensive and often toxic chemicals. They will also compare the pH level of various brands of bottled water, popular beverages and restructured, ionized tap water. Just like in our local rivers and streams, increased alkalinity in our own bodies helps buffer us against the toxic effects of acidity.

Presenter Ted James is a retired science teacher who serves on the boards of both the Walking Mountains Science Center and the Colorado Watershed Assembly. James continues his work as a River Watch volunteer, monitoring the pH of Buck Creek, Beaver Creek and the Eagle River. James will be joined by Jim Coddington, a hydration specialist from Los Angeles.

The Science Behind series of classes highlights useful and fun skills that have underlying scientific principles. Each class provides a hands-on, interactive component with instruction from a local subject matter expert and a Walking Mountains educator. Classes are held once a month at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon. Spaces are limited, please call to reserve your spot today 970-827-9725.
