Science Explorers – Bubbles [5+] - Wednesday, April 18 from 5 PM

One of the questions we get a lot is about teaching little ones science.

The best way for our beginning readers to learn about science is to explore the concepts by experience.

On Wednesday, April 18th at 5 PM in the Library Community Room, we will be hosting our second meeting of Science Explorers.

The kids will be able to learn about bubbles and solutions.

Children will get to experience the bubbles as we will try a variety of different shapes.
