Join Durham, NC, children's author and Soil and Water Conservation District Associate Supervisor, Melissa Rooney, for hands-on, kid-safe Science at the Family Stage at Durham's Centerfest (*free*) on Saturday, September 16, from 12-1 PM. See centerfest.durhamarts.org/directions for directions. The kids and Melissa will discuss and utilize electrons, electricity and electrical circuits to learn about what powers our world and how we can best maximize its uses while minimizing their deleterious side effects. In addition to "Eddie the Electron", copies of "Eddie the Electron Moves Out", the second in her STEM-based children's book series (ages 5-10) with Amberjack Publishing, "I Chalk", and "The Fate of a Frog" will be available for sale ($10), though purchase is definitely not necessary.
