Science Alive is back next week for Term 3 with their Science Snippets sessions in libraries. Excellent Science Alive educators lead children through interactive activities to stimulate their interest in science, and there is something to take home every week! There is a different theme for each session and this coming week from Monday 1 August it’s Colour Magic at Papanui, Lyttelton, Fendalton, Upper Riccarton, and Hornby (it will be Colour Magic at South, Aranui, Shirley, Linwood, and Parklands on the week starting 8 August).
