Science Night returns to the Menlo Park Library on April 14
On Thursday, April 14, the Menlo Park Library will be hosting its second Science Night for adults, teens, and elementary school-aged children, featuring guests including the Aquarium of the Bay and the Computer History Museum.
The Aquarium of the Bay will be bringing its BayMobile, which will be in front of the library with a touch tank for people to explore. Inside the library, attendees will get to try hands-on science experiments from Science Made Fun, try their hand at programming a robot with TechyKids, and meet the tiny Raspberry Pi educational computer with the Computer History Museum.
Both TechLab and TechShop will also be bringing along some friendly tech, and Menlo Spark will be showing off a miniature solar-powered house with working appliances. Finally, people can enjoy close— but safe — encounters with insects, provided by the Beekeepers Guild of San Mateo County, and the San Mateo County Mosquito & Vector Control District.
Attendees will be able to visit the various demonstration and exhibit stations their own pace during this free event, which will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14. The Menlo Park Main Library is located at 800 Alma Street. The Menlo Park Library Science Night is funded in part by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library
