Teen Events Explore the Science of the Invisible World

Teens, Invisible World events focusing on forensic science, microbiology and medicine are coming to a branch near you in early 2019. This is a chance to explore much of the typically "unseen" world through the hands-on lab techniques.

From learning about extracting DNA from a strawberry to observing "alien-like" creatures crawling around under the microscope, the STEAM adventures are unlimited. Invisible World events begin in January and run through May.

Our YOUmedia STEM program trainer Jenny Kljucaric, who has a background in art and 3D printing—plus exceptional project management skills, spent several months researching techniques using Next Generation Science Standards and evaluating tools before designing and leading staff in a series of trainings focused on developing dynamic STEM-focused spaces and facilitating hands-on forensic science workshops. Our staff members are incredibly excited about the new supplies they'll receive to take deeper dives in water microbe safaris and more.
