  • Play a bird ID game with the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge Complex
  • Meet & learn about the creatures from Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, NorCal Bats, and BAARS: The Bay Area Amphibian and Reptile Society
  • Try your hand at engineering tops with the Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo
  • Explore dry ice experiments with Mad Science of the Bay Area
  • Ponder with SETI Institute and NASA on the topic of “Looking for ET: Where, How and What Might We Find?”

The free event will take place from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. 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.
