Come Explore With Us @ Central Library

explorerJoin us at Central every Thursday afternoon (3:00-4:00 pm) in June and July for our new series of Exploration Lab programs!  Kids will have the opportunity to explore and experiment with a variety of science-themed hands-on activities; upcoming topics include insects, weather, simple machines, buoyancy and optical illusions.

The first lab exploring soil science was a smash hit (and ended up being a bit of a muddy mess).  Check out the budding scientists below and drop by Central’s Children’s Library to see our worm farm and seedlings in person.
