Family Science Expo

The library is hosting our fourth annual Family Science Expo on Sunday, January 29, from 1-3 pm. The drop-in event is an opportunity for families to dive into a range of science activities throughout the library. We also have a variety of resources available online year-round for kids of all ages to learn more about science. Here are a few options to get you started:

Online Resources

Science Online: This database includes a science encyclopedia, experiments, biographies, and illustrations, and is ideal for grades 6 and up.

Gale Virtual Reference Library: Select from a variety of options like “101 Great Science Experiments.” This is a great resource when it comes time for school science fairs.

World Book Online: Click on the box for “info finder,” then “go to science projects” for basic information about performing experiments. There are lots of links to project ideas for both younger and older students.

NetTrekker: NetTrekker curates digital resources so that only teacher-approved websites and digital resources are included in search results. From the “browse” tab, choose “science,” then “science fair topics” or another science-related topic of interest.

Another great option is to stop into the library and speak to one of our librarians. We are always happy to help you find the materials you need to explore or investigate anything that piques your curiosity!
