Science Saturday

Welcome to our exciting and engaging monthly series "Science Saturdays"! 
Each month we will provide children ages Pre-K through 3rd grade (and their parents/caregivers) the opportunity to learn a science concept while enjoying a children's story linked to a simple hands on science activity!
This educational (and FREE) series is the result of a collaboration between the Library Children's Staff and the Friends of the Sandwich Public Library. Each month, a librarian from the Children's room will share a book and our host, Patricia McKean, a former science teacher and current Board member of the Friends, will introduce a basic physical or life science concept and walk viewers through the activity.
Come back each month to listen to a new story and learn a new science concept. Simply click on the link to the supporting documents then click on the video link to watch the show! The videos are all pre-recorded so you can watch them at your convenience and as often as you'd like.
Enjoy, and remember: "Magic is Science in Disguise".

Science Saturdays is funded by the Friends of the Sandwich Public Library and the Kiwanis Club of Sandwich
