Science Adventure



It is gratifying to watch how a child’s imagination, sparked by simple physics or chemistry experiments, unleashes a curiosity about her surroundings.

With the Foundation’s help, the Library created Science Adventure, a program that runs along with the traditional Summer Reading Program and similarly encourages children to engage science over the summer. And when each child completes the program they go home with a simple science tool to continue exploring. With the Foundation’s support, the Library was able to hire teachers to help plan and execute the program, and provided materials and prizes for the 2,000 local children who signed up.
