Bre’Auna Smith, STEM education associate with the Imagination Station, mixes water with liquid nitrogen and air to create steam Monday afternoon at Kaubisch Memorial Public Library. Imagination Station employees brought Extreme Science to area children through various experiments and lesson. Youngsters watched as water molecules stuck together and were suspended in air using a screen and a jar; made predictions on what would happen when two iron spheres were struck together, struck paper and struck foil; learned about how sound is formed using a heated pipe; experimented with liquid nitrogen using water balloons and balloons filled with air to learn how water and air react to the substance; and made bubbles or foam using hydrogen peroxide, dish soap, food coloring and a catalyst. The event took place as part of the library’s Summer Reading Program: “Libraries Rock!” Other upcoming events through the program include STEM at 10 a.m. today; preschool storytime at 2 p.m. today and 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday; an ’80s dance party at 5 p.m. Thursday; crafts rock! at 2 p.m. Friday and Movie & Munchies at 10 a.m. Saturday, featuring “Sing.” For more information, visit fostoria.lib.oh.us/ or call 419-435-2813.
