• Sciencetellers Race Against Time 
    Science through stories!

    Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 4:00 pm in the Walpole Library Community Room
    Join us on a fast-paced adventure about two kids who find themselves racing against the clock! Before time runs outs, throw on your lab coat and buckle in — you are about to experience the science of power and energy through several explosive, hands-on experiments that will have you laughing, learning and having fun! We will make things float, bounce, soar and transform right before your eyes, all while exploring the concepts of surface tension, air pressure, chemical reactions, the law of inertia, scientific variables and more!
    Recommended for children grades K- 3 / This is a drop-in program

    This program is funded through the Walpole CFCE Program, through the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care’s Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Grant and the Walpole Library.
