Self-paced during April vacation week (April 19-23)
Self-paced Chemistry experiments during April vacation week. Using a special video made by Dr. Sandra Pearl and Dr. Elizabeth Bless from SEED (Science and Education and Development, Inc). and a kit of materials that includes every item needed for active experimentation, teens and tweens will experiment with chemistry. SEED is a regional nonprofit organization run by PhD scientists with a passion for empowering teachers with the confidence to instill a love of science in their students.
Register online from the event calendar starting Monday, April 5. Complete kits are available for curbside pickup starting the week before vacation. When you register, we will send you a link to the YouTube video that will instruct you how to do the experiments. Do them at your own pace and send us some exciting pictures. This program is for Westford residents only and requires a library card for registration.
ONE Kit per household please. Sign up here.
