Library Summer Reading Program 2017

Our science educators have developed a special summer science demonstration on the upcoming total solar eclipse for the summer library reading program. This planetarium show uses the Center's new portable planetarium to give an interactive tour of the night sky with longtime astronomer, Dan Glomski. Dan also uses this program to educate and excite students about the upcoming total solar eclipse taking place on August 21, 2017.
    
Your library can choose our Planetarium Demonstration or any of the demonstrations from our demonstration list to ignite your summer reading program. This is a great way to get children excited about science and the world around them!

Edgerton's summer programming can be customized to each library and their specific needs.bProgramming can include one or several demonstrations, our traveling Explorit Zone or even an entire Science Discovery Day. The traveling Explorit Zone includes 25 hands on science activity station with which children of all ages can play and interact with. Programming includes an option for a science discovery day during which you can have up to six demonstrations or hands on labs of your choice.
