Join us at the Almaden Branch Library on Wednesday, May 18, at 3:30 p.m. as the library's Program Room is turned into a laboratory for young scientists. Children will investigate chemical reactions with dry ice as they solve a dilemma presented within a folktale.
"Dry Ice Science" is presented by the Children's Discovery Museum and stimulates kids to explore the wonders of science. This challenging science program integrates language arts and problem-solving with interactive experiments. The program:
• Develops experimental design and problem-solving skills
• Promotes essentials of observation
• Sparks students' curiosity
This event will be held in the library's Program Room and is intended for kids ages 5 to 12.
This event is made possible through the generous contributions of Friends of the Almaden Branch Library.
