The Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library is helping children take a look at science and chemistry through its three-week series “Mad Science,” at 2 p.m. on Fridays, Oct. 11, 18 and 25, at the library.

Children ages 8 to 11 are invited to take part in hands-on activities each week of the series. They’ll be able to create mixtures that erupt, explode, or are just plain weird, all while learning a little more about science.

Themes are:

Oct. 11 – Slime

Oct. 18 – Explosions and Eruptions

Oct. 25 – Mad Science

Space is limited, so advance registration is required to participate. Attendees need to be able to attend all three weeks of the series.
