65 children and 44 adults were entertained by Jon Bartell of Science Quest at the final children's event of the summer reading program. Mr. Jon amazed the audience with all kinds of fun science facts and experiments utilizing everyday household items. He brought along several of his rescued animals, such as a ferret, hedgehog, parrotlet, tortoise, chichilla and several reptiles. Children were able to pet the animals and ask questions.
Mr. Jon emphasized that science is all around us and can be fun if we use our imaginations. He has all sorts of fact sheets, coloring pages and simple experiments on his website www.science-quest.com
