ScienceTellers “Aliens”
10 AM – 11 AM
hosted by Springfield Library – This event will be located in the Springfield Township Administration Building, across the parking lot from the Library.

Two curious kids venture into the forest to investigate and find themselves mixed up with a family of visitors from another planet! Pursued by a crazy space scientist, they must risk everything to rescue the aliens and get them back to their spaceship — before it’s too late!
Don’t miss this action-packed and educational alien adventure using science experiments for special effects. It’s totally out of this world!
Throughout this amazing intergalactic story, we use science experiments to bring the story to life! In the second part of the show, we go “behind the scenes” of the special effects and recreate the science experiments with the help of volunteers from the audience.
Discover the unbelievable world of physics and chemistry through exciting experiments, like:
Turning a liquid into solid “worms” through a chemical reaction.
Launching a potato into the air using Boyle’s law.
Making a flying rocket using two common household chemicals.
Transferring energy between matter to create a “rainstorm.”
And much more!

Humans should celebrate the first man on the moon. That was a huge accomplishment! BUT…Did you know that a multitude of our animal friends had already made the trip to space long before we did? This program will feature three important scientific topics:
1) How animals have been instrumental in our ability to understand space and its effects on living organisms.
2) The importance of many species’ ability to adapt to new and potentially dangerous environments.
3) The idea that while we continue to search the universe for new habitats and life forms we should continue to conserve the uniquely precious resources we have here at home.
