Glow Lab

Want to learn how things glow? Come to the Glow Lab on July 30th at 2pm at the Traverwood branch! We’ll learn about what makes objects and animals glow, get some candy that sparks when you crunch on it, and make light magnets and glowing slime to take home.

Yes! This glow lab I might be able to go to! :)

I wish they had this for older kids

Why does this event have to be for K-5th graders. It sounds so fun, I wish I could go.

Hopefully next year there will be a 6-8.....

Nothing's stopping the older kids from joining in, as long as there's enough for everyone. I stopped by today, and it looked like everyone was having fun.

I think this is a very interesting thing for people to learn about and really fun for kids because it's about things that glow and they get to take home some slime which makes it even better.
