Now in its 12th year of delivering science education programming to area children, Mad Science of Greater Kansas City dazzles and amuses its young audience with foggy, dry ice storms; giant beach balls floating in the air; and a special, Mad Science “burp potion” – all in the name of learning about chemical reactions, air pressure, and the states of matter.

Recommended for all ages.

Teen readers discuss In Real Life by Cory Doctorow. Graphic Fiction Readers is a book group for teens that meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Trails West branch. Copies of the selection are available for checkout at the branch library.

Anda loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role playing game that she spends most of her free time on. It's a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It's a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends. Gaming is, for Anda, entirely a good thing.
