Science Is Everywhere!

Interested in science and technology?  Then you'll love our upcoming series of new programs!  Starting in December we'll have tons of awesome science programming for elementary-aged children.  We've been awarded a grant* to develop a range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs, and they'll start next month!

Each month we'll do an experiment-based science program for kids in grades 3 to 5.  Our first will be in December, and we'll be dissecting owl pellets!  In the coming months we'll experiment with chemistry by doing pH testing, we'll explore solar energy, we'll design our own space rovers, we'll make paper roller coasters to learn about physics, and so much more!

And in 2013, keep an eye out for LEGO Robotics, as well as some great summer science programming!

For now, be sure to sign up for our first Science is Everywhere program where we'll be dissecting owl pellets.  It'll be on Thursday, December 13 at 3:30 p.m.  It's gross, it's amazing, and it's science!  Registration starts today (Thursday, November 29), so stop in or call 617-972-6435 to sign-up!

*The Children's Department's Science is Everywhere grant is funded by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the Library Services and Technology Act, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
