Young Adult Book Discussion: On the Come Up

The Cultural Committee of the Chathams, the Library of the Chathams, and the School District of the Chathams present a discussion of the book On the Come Up by Angie Thomas.

Set in the same neighborhood as Thomas’s electrifying The Hate U Give, this visceral novel makes clear and convincing observations about the cycle of poverty and the inescapable effects of systemic racism.

Super Science: Slime (Chemistry)

The twin team of CHS students Lea and Jack Casano-Boris returns for a summer series of Super Science for Kids classes!  Each class includes an experiment and an explanation of the science behind that experiment.  Classes will be conducted online via Zoom.  Before the class, the students will receive a Zoom link, instructions for preparation, and will have to pick up a supply kit using the library’s Takeout service.  Experiments can get a little messy, and parents’ supervision and help is required for all classes.

**************

August 17: Every child is mesmerized with slime and its squishy texture!  Seemingly just a blob of goo, this childhood plaything actually has a lot of science behind it.  Slime is made up of of polymers and bonds that give it its texture and shapability.

Grades 1 to 3                                                        Limit: 10 students

Each class requires separate registration.  Register for Slime here.

Registration limited to Chatham residents only.
