The Spencer County Public Library has completed its annual summer reading program. This year the theme was science based, “Fizz, Boom, Read”. Students were encouraged to attend programs and read during their summer break. Efforts were rewarded with fun activities such as visits from Mr. Magic, Animal Science, the Mad Scientist, the Amazing Darshwood and fishing at the tail waters of Taylorsville Lake. The programs were not only fun but educational. The mad scientist used experiments based on Daniel Bernoulli’s physics principle. Kids were encouraged to remember Bernoulli’s name by thinking of burnt noodles and participated in experiments of his work by watching as toilet tissue flew across the room when air pressure was forced along its surface. They got to ride a hover craft and make a hot air balloon. The airplane, helicopter (generate lift on wings) and the race car (uses down force to stay on the ground) are all based on Bernoulli’s principle. During the wrap up program, science stations were set up around the library and the outside area so that students could view different scientific principles like static electricity, density, molecular changes and how things respond to environmental changes such as with the Mentos and soda experiment. Everyone who signed up and read receives a coupon package, book and prize.
