The Bugs of Blackwood
11 AM
hosted by Media-UP Free Library at the Community Center at 301 N Jackson St, Media, PA 19063
for ages 5-12
Sciencetellers teach us about matter by telling a story using science experiments. Benjamin has a good life living on Blackwood Avenue. Most of his neighbors are friendly. He has a large extended family always there to help him. And on most days you’ll find him working in the garden. However, all this was about to change the day he was accidentally brought into the house. You see, Benjamin is a bug and now he must be rescued! By using experiments with fire, gas, air pressure, water, chemicals, and much more, see if Benjamin’s friends can save him before all hope is squashed!
