Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library invites children ages 8 to 11 to attend “Mad Science Saturday” this fall. This is new series of three monthly programs designed to help children learn about scientific topics through exploration and fun experimentation. Mad Science Saturday will be held in the Library’s Turrentine Room from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.:

  • Saturday, September 20, 2014 - Salt Painting Ice Sculptures
  • Saturday, October 18, 2014 - Fossils for Kids
  • Saturday, November 15, 2014 - Bridging the Gap—Why do Bridges Fall Down?

The sessions include hands-on experiments and projects. Related books and website information will be presented to help children pursue their scientific interests or provide homework help.

Senior Youth Services Librarian, Cindi Bouvier, said, “Children need to engage and learn to problem solve while having fun. Mad Science Saturday is ideal in that it offers children the opportunity to learn and have fun at the same time, and it introduces them to print and web reference sources.”

Library programs, events, and services are free and open to the public. This program is funded by Friends of the Escondido Public Library. Registration is not required.

The Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street, Escondido, CA 92025. Contact Senior Librarian Cindi Bouvier for further information at 760-839-4827 or at cbouvier@escondido.org.
