In recognition of this year’s theme of “Fizz, Boom, Read!”, we are pleased to present Soda Bottle Science – A Delightful Deluge of Dirt Cheap Science Experiments That Go Fizz, Boom and Pop! by winning author and science celebrity Steve “The Dirtmeister” Tomecek. Steve will be at the Sidney Library on Wednesday, July 23rd at 10:00 am. During the program, Steve will explore over a dozen different science experiments that kids can safely do at home using soda bottles, coffee cans, sandwich bags and other household items. This event is free and open to the public. Following the program, Steve will be available to meet and greet the audience and will also be available to autograph copies of some of his awesome books including his Scholastic books, Soda Bottle Science, Coffee Can Science, and Sandwich Bag Science.
Thank you to the Friends of the Libraries for sponsoring this wonderful event.
