Spring ScienceConnections Programs for Kids

Seeking a warm, supportive atmosphere to explore science themes with your 6- to 13-year-old? CPL's citywide ScienceConnection programs offer informal activity stations to engage kids and families in age-appropriate, appealing and fun out-of-school learning opportunities.

Recently, at the McKinley Park Branch, kids made static electricity ghosts and tested the strength of bridges they designed and built. At West Town and Edgewater Branches, kids built pinhole cameras to view the eclipse! Other programs include growing and planting, making lava lamps, learning about cicadas, making musical instruments and more.

What’s even better? These programs are year-round! View upcoming ScienceConnections programs.

ScienceConnections programs are made possible with generous funding through the Chicago Public Library Foundation.
