Mad Science LogoMad Science: Fizz Boom Read!

Saturday, August 2 at 11:00 am

Our scientists just love to make things pop, ooze, whoosh, spew, gush, burst, blare, blaze, blast, and belch and this
year’s Summer Reading theme is right up their alley! Join us as we “grow” a milkshake, create wacky sounds in our
unique Mad Science way, and even attempt to poke a needle clear through a balloon without having it go BOOM! We may even have a fire-breathing dragon make an appearance on the scene for a grand finale!


This popular program will resume in March. During the months of March and April, four kids can sign up to display their collections in the DuBois Children’s Reading Room.
