This week at the Stillwater Public Library's summer reading program, children will have a chance to explore science with Mad Science demonstrations,teens will learn what it is like to be a crime scene investigator, and families can enjoy a fun film.
Tuesday, June 12, children will learn about using acids, bases and indicators, and make smoke rings with compressed air. The scientists will then let the "genie out of the bottle" and ask children to fly to the deep space as they dream to be astronauts. Children and adults of all ages are invited to attend any of the three performances which are at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., but seating is limited. The 3:30 performance often has the most seating available. Children who wear their summer reading t-shirts to Tuesday's performance will have a chance to win prizes.
Wednesday, June 13, at 2:00 PM, Agent Michael Dean with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations brings an Oklahoma crime scene to the library's teen sleuths. Dean will lead through the clues of a crime scene step by step. Participants will put the clues together to solve the crime.
