The Jackson County Public Library and the Macon County Public Library are participating in the North Carolina Science Festival presented by the Biogen Foundation. The festival will be held from April 7-23, and each library will be hosting one event during this timeframe. First, at 4:00PM on Tuesday, April 11th at the Jackson County Public Library, the monthly Science Club will meet. Science with My Peeps is a Spring themed Science Club where children will use recycled materials to build a contraption in which to protect their raw eggs from a high fall, as well as build catapults (to launch Peeps) out of popsicle sticks, spoons, and rubber bands. Then, on Thursday, April 20th at the Macon County Public Library, Family Science Night will begin at 6:00PM. This program will consist of a variety of hands-on science related activities for kids and grown-ups of all ages, including a number of shows in the Portable Planetarium. (These planetarium programs are supported by grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library services under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.)
