The Mad Science Group from Kansas City will be presenting a program on Tuesday, June 14th at 10 a.m. at the Marion Community Center.
Mad Science will bring to life an interactive Rube Goldberg Machine™ that will set off a series of hilarious chain reactions with a simple goal in mind: To open a book. What better way to inspire a child’s life-long adventure in the world of books and literature! Mad Science encourages scientific literacy in children in an age when science is as vital as reading, writing and arithmetic.
Everyone is invited to attend!! Admission is FREE!!!
