Friday Performance: Sciencetellers 
10:30 – 11:15 AM
at Ridley Township Library
Best for ages 3-10
This year, Sciencetellers present:  Super Heroes!  In this original collection of slightly twisted tales, all the teachers at school are suspected to have superpowers! Join us on a hilarious new adventure where, just like in science, things aren’t always quite what they seem. We will launch things through the air, send them plummeting toward the ground, and even make things transform and disappear right before your eyes!  Throw on your labcoat and get ready to experience forces and reactions through several exciting, hands-on experiments that will have the audience laughing, learning and having fun! Enjoy this spectacular adventure and be swept away to a place where truly ‘super’ heroes really do exist
