National Leap Into S
Spotswood Public Library
Wednesday, Feb. 27, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
It's National Leap Into Science Week!

Join us for a workshop for families as we explore concepts of balance through Leap Into Science, a program engineered by The Franklin Institute to help audiences understand STEM concepts in a manner less interested in "right" and "wrong" and more interested in "how" and "why".

Balance is a crucial concept to learn about. While many of us understand it intrinsically in our bodies, making things outside the body balance is a skill that often has to be learned. 

Families will have the opportunity to visit various stations set up around the library to learn about balance using everyday objects, teeter totters and even your own body!

This is a drop-in activity from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm.  No registration is required.
