Enjoy ‘mad science’ at the library

By From page A7 | January 06, 2013

The Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis, welcomes the Mad Science Laboratory from 3 to 3:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Children from kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to view experiments in physics and chemistry, ranging from volcanic reactions to spinning centrifugal force. Children will learn to identify physical forces and molecular interactions in everyday activities, and observe chemical reactions that make foam shoot up into the air.

“Watch as a hand appears to grow, and a swirl of steam like a genie dances out of a bottle!” a news release said.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Davis Public Library. An American Sign Language interpreter will be on hand.

The program is free and will take place in the Activities Room, which is accessible to people with disabilities. No reservations are required.
