Science Alive Alive -o


Back in the day, before testing ran the curriculum, our teacher would play the piano, and we would sing songs.  One of the songs was about a man selling cockles, and mussels alive, alive-o.  This doesn’t have a direct  connection to this year’s Science Alive program, but I couldn’t think of a better title for this blog so —

This year’s Science Alive, as far as I know,  will not have cockles or mussels – alive or dead.  However,  it will be very exciting and well worth the time.  There are no less than 12 programs and a plethora of exhibits on all four floors of the library.  Do you go woo woo about wacky weather?  Are you mushy for magic chemistry?  Are you cuckoo for creatures of the night?  Are you hopped up for the Health Works Museum? Are you anxious about animal athletes or animal legends or animal folklore?  Are you moved by marshmallows in space? Are you sappy about sustainable energy?  Are you loco about life on mars?  Are you quacky about QuarkNet Physics?  Are nutty for natural disasters?  If any of these descriptions apply to you, you’d better high-tail it to Science Alive, on February 2 between 10:00 a.m. and 4: p.m. at the Main Library in South Bend!

There will be exhibits in every part of the library.  This year’s Science Alive has no less than 35 hands-on exhibits!  So, grab your hands and direct your feet to Science Alive on February 2.  Don’t tell me  your social calendar is completely filled with Groundhog’s Day events.  Any groundhog will tell you that Groundhog’s Day celebrations are grossly overrated.

I saved the best for last.  The South Bend Chocolate Cafe not only has an exhibit, but they are known to give out free samples!  Save some for me.

See you at Science Alive!
