Virtual Summer Reading Kick-off Party!

Join us on Monday, June 15 to kick off our Summer Reading Clubs! ScienceTellers puts an interactive twist to storytelling and science in two exciting programs:  

 Dragons: Return of the Ice Sorceress (Grades K and up): Long, long ago, two kids go on a daring adventure to find a dragon and save the kingdom from the Ice Sorceress! When things don’t go as planned, however, they must turn to themselves (and to science!) for the answer. A fun fantasy adventure with dry ice effects!  https://vimeo.com/421330198/de94ac01b0

Dragons, Jr. (Ages Pre-K and up): A long time ago, in a faraway land, two kids discover a friendly dragon! Together, they go on several adventures and learn all about dry ice along the way. A fun spin-off of our popular “Dragons” show, designed specifically for younger learners!
