Are you a future chemist? Are your children curious about science and chemistry? Area kids and teens are invited to some hands-on workshops full of interesting and engaging chemistry experiments at the downtown Main Library on Saturday, March 22. Dr. Graeme Wyllie from the Concordia College Science Academy is back with more hands-on science activities for both kids and teens.
In the morning, kids in grades 4 to 6 are invited to the library’s Kids and Chemistry sessions which will show youngsters the difference between exothermic (give out heat) and endothermic (take in heat) reactions. 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 Main Library. Space is limited; pre-registration is required. Register online or call the Children’s Librarian at (701) 241-1495 for details.
Dr. Graeme Wyllie will also present two Great Chemistry for Teens! sessions 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.
