Do you have a young scientist at your house? Kids in grades 4 through 6 are invited to the downtown Main Library for a hands-on science workshop to learn the chemistry and science in the tie-dye process on Saturday, Feb. 16. Taught by Dr. Graeme Wylie and the students from the Concordia College Science Academy, the Science of Tie-Dye Program features colorful, safe, hands-on experiments to teach kids about color, dyes, and the chemistry behind making dyes stick to cloth. Youngsters, with the help of Dr. Graeme and his lab assistants, will create one-of-a-kind t-shirts to take home as part of this workshop. Come prepared to get messy! Two 90-minute sessions are scheduled; the first session is from 9:30 to 11 a.m. The program is repeated from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. All materials will be provided. Space is limited; pre-registration is required. Register online or call the Children’s Librarian at 241-1495.
Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Adults must accompany children under 10 years old.
