The Youth Science Expo is coming up!

We are absolutely thrilled about our upcoming Youth Science Expo on Tuesday, July 8th from 2-4 p.m.  The expo will be a library-wide festival where youth ages 8-18 can design some cool projects while learning about scientific concepts.  Kids and teens will learn to take their pulse, shoot a vortex cannon, make computer keyboards out of gummy worms, and design some slick e-textile accessories.

One of our favorite activities is a station where kids can design their own balloon-powered cars.  Here’s a video to get a flavor for the project.  We hope that you can come to the expo to design a car with us, of course, but if you can’t make it, you can use this video’s instructions to create some air pressure-powered racers at home:
