Science in Action with "Mr. James"

Children, ages 8 years and older, are invited to join "Mr. James" as he dazzles his audience, creating cool and colorful experiments using common household items. Children can then recreate the experiments themselves — prepare to be "slimed" or harness the power of "twister in a bottle" … and more. Weather permitting, some larger experiments will be conducted outside. This event will be held in Rodman Main Auditorium on Friday, Nov. 28, from 2:00-3:00 p.m., and will be repeated from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Sessions will be limited to groups of 20, so sign up early by stopping at the Main Children's Desk or calling the Main Children's Department at 330-821-2665, ext. 223.
