Lincoln County public libraries’ On your mark, get set . . . READ! summer reading programs bring Mad Science’s Madame Chaos back to the coast this week on Wednesday and Thursday, July 27 & 28. All children and families are invited to attend one of these free programs.
Wednesday, July 27, Madame Chaos will be at Waldport Public Library (10 a.m.), Newport Public Library (1 p.m.), and Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City (6:30 p.m.). On Thursday, July 28, she will be at Toledo Public Library (11 a.m.) and Siletz Public Library (1:00 p.m.).
“The purpose is to show kids that learning about science is fun,” says Madame Chaos. “In fact, it is the most fun subject that anyone can even imagine. This year’s show will feature the science of sports and will be, as always, a bang-up good time.”
Madame Chaos has been with the Portland franchise of ‘Mad Science’ for about seven years. “My background, you ask? I have a degree in psychology, which helps in this line of work – but my first love is science. Loving science, loving the kids, and having fun, is what it’s all about.”
These programs are made possible by Ready to Read grant money from the Oregon Legislature with additional support from Thompson’s Sanitary Service, Inc., Ross and Janis Neigebauer, Jeanette Hofer, Umpqua Bank, La Quinta Inn and Suites and D’Sands Motel.
