Science comes alive at the library

The Gays Mills Public Library has a fun-filled July planned for kids ages six to 13. ‘Fizz, Boom, Read’ is the Summer Reading Program theme in Wisconsin and the library urges you to take full advantage of the excitement from 10 to noon every Tuesday in July. Fabulous presenters join us to bring science to life. On July 1, Russell Gilbert launches the fun, exploring rockets. Rumor has it that bottle rockets will be concocted and launched.

In the weeks to follow, Larry Scheckel, author of ‘Ask a Science Teacher’ will amaze and enthrall with his interactive science presentations including ‘Sound & Waves,’ ‘Aerospace & Aviation,’ ‘Liquids & Gases’ and ‘Laws of Motion.’  Larry Scheckel, science teacher, author, and science shows presenter wants to show that science is valuable, a worthy human pursuit and just plain fun. FUN should be capitalized. FUN should be shouted out loud.

On each Tuesday, after the presentation, children can stay for more games and art activities that build on the theme of each presentation. Children can come for one program or for all five. No registration is required, but if you want to let us know you are coming that would be great.

These programs are free and open to the public. For more information call the library or visit the website,
