Fizz, Boom, Read With Mad Science
Mad Scientists love to make things pop, ooze, whoosh, spew, gush, burst, blare, blaze, blast and belch. So this year’s Summer Reading theme is right up their alley! Join Mad Science as they “grow” an exothermic milkshake, create wacky sounds in their unique Mad Science way, and attempt to poke a needle through a balloon without having it go boom! A fire-breathing dragon may even make an appearance on the scene for the grand finale. You definitely don’t want to miss this! This program is for Summer Reading participants only. You will have to show your reading record at the door. The Mad Science program is provided by a grant from The Stocker Foundation.
