Program brings hands-on science fun to 3 libraries



Summer fun continues at the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library with Hooked on Science, a special program happening Monday at three EVPL locations. Elementary school-age kids will see science in action and learn how superheroes benefit from science. The presenter, “Mr. Science,” Jason Lindsey, is one of only seven STEM Certified Master Trainers in America.


The schedule for the free program:

10:30 am – East Branch Library

1:00 pm – Stringtown Branch Library

3:30 pm – West Branch Library


At Hooked on Science, kids will help Mr. Science use a leaf blower to shoot toilet paper through the air, attempt to pull apart two phone books, and assist with other hands-on activities that demonstrate how superheroes take flight and more.


Lindsey is an award-winning science educator and author. Each year he performs interactive experiments at hundreds of schools and community events throughout the United States.
