Summer Sleuthing at Bowling Green

Bowling Green
Wednesdays at 2:00pm
Starting June 13th!

Did you know that wasps can be trained to detect chemicals or that koalas have fingerprints?  This summer we’ll be learning about animal detectives- how animals are helping law enforcement and how law enforcement techniques can be used to study animals in the wild.  We’ll test our own scent tracking skills and try and reconstruct a prehistoric animal from the evidence it left behind.

Dates:  June 13th, June 20th, June 27th, July 11th, and July 18th

(Please note that the library will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th so there will be no science program that week.)

Calling all 9-15 year olds!
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, will be to:

Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.
