Making learning fun

Warren County Memorial Library was all about science Tuesday afternoon.
Scienceteller Cassie Schulz wowed the crowd with a show that blended science experiments and storytelling to teach children about scientific concepts and ideas.

The visit was part of the library's summer reading program.

"Every hero has a story" is the theme for the summer reading program for libraries across the state. It invites patrons to learn about heroes, from historical and local to super, and discover their heroes within.

Schulz also performed her show at Perry Memorial Library in Henderson on Wednesday afternoon to an excited crowd.

Dressed in a tie-dye lab coat, Schulz began a story about a school with a staff of heroes. After each mini story, Schulz went into a difference experiment.

"The kids' reactions are completely natural," she said. "I really like it when girls want to get involved. It's really cool to see young girls get excited about what we do."
