Mad Science workshops

Mad Science Preschool Workshops are unique hands-on, minds-on learning experiences for preschool-age children, ages 3 to 5 years old. Interactive and age-appropriate, each workshop introduces children to a basic science topic. From animal friends and bugs, to water, weather and worms, dozens of topics are available. Preschool workshops last for 45 minutes, but the interest they spark can last a lifetime. Call your local library to register. Here are upcoming workshops:
