Sciencetellers To Set Sail At Ocean County Library Branches

June 05, 2017

TOMS RIVER - The Ocean County Library will offer “Sciencetellers Present: Building Tall Ships
& Pirate Tales” at eight branches this summer.

Sciencetellers provides positive, interactive and educational science programs. Library
audiences will enjoy an action-packed adventure about quirky pirates on a desert island with
interactive science experiments to bring the story to life.

Volunteers from the audience will participate in exploring the science behind clouds,
combustion, air pressure and more. With mutiny and high-tide looming, they must rescue the
salty captain and find a way to build a ship before all hope is lost.

Do not miss this lively nautical tale for ages five and up.
