Science Alive 2017!

Science Alive 2017

Mark your calendars for the 25th annual Science Alive on Saturday, February 4, 2017 and join ND Energy in the 3rd floor presentation room for hands on demonstrations and experiments to learn more about energy!

St. Joseph County Public Library will celebrate 25 years of STEM during its 25th Annual Science Alive. Participants will build robots, conduct experiments, meet animals and more during this fun-filled day of free, family-friendly activities. Last year’s beautiful weather brought in over 3,200 children and their families who enjoyed over 40 exhibits, 6 stage performances, and ETHOS Science 2-Go Bus. Community organizations, schools, and businesses continued to share their love of science with children through exciting, hands-on learning experiences, working to bring SJCPL’s mission of “Learn. Discover. Experience.” to life.
