Are you a future chemist? Do you have kids who like “Mythbusters”-inspired science experiments? Area kids and teens are invited to some hands-on workshops full of interesting and engaging chemistry experiments at the Dr. James Carlson Library on Saturday, Jan. 18. Led by Dr. Graeme Wylie from the Concordia College Science Academy, the Fargo Public Library will host events for both kids and teens.
In the morning, kids in grades 4 to 6 are invited to the library’s “Science Mythbusters” sessions which will show youngsters how to test if advertising claims are true or false. All materials will be provided. Participants should come prepared to get messy! Two sessions are set; the first starts at 9:30 a.m., and the program will be repeated at 11 a.m. at the Dr. James Carlson Library. Space is limited; pre-registration is required. Register online or call the Children’s Librarian at (701) 241-1495 for details.
Dr. Graeme Wylie will also present two Great Chemistry for Teens! events at the library. Open to teens in grades 6 through 12, these programs will use the power of science to allow teen scientists to carry out a range of cool, safe chemistry experiments with the help and direction of Dr. Graeme and the Concordia Chemistry Team. Two 90-minute sessions are scheduled; the first session is from 1 to 2:30 p.m. The program is repeated at 3 p.m. Space is limited; pre-registration is required. Register online or call the Teen Librarian at (701) 476-5978 for details.
