Parramatta City Library and its branches are hosting a number of experiments and workshops as part of National Science Week16-24 August.
Interactive, free activities include hands-on workshops, experiments and quizzes to help children learn about matter, gasses and the planets around them.
Lord Mayor of Parramatta, Cr John Chedid said: “We want to engage the whole community and challenge the audience to look for science everywhere around them”.
The main activity, the Brain Break Challenge, involves the library displaying a science-related quiz question, activity or suggested read for people to complete.
Taking place throughout the whole week, the Brain Break Challenge can be found on the library’s Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest pages, and in all branches. Library members who complete the challenge will go into a draw to win a prize.
