Super Science: Oobleck (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.

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

On August 10, we will make oobleck from cornstarch and water.  When these two ingredients are mixed together, they form what is called a “non-Newtonian fluid” – a substance that acts as both a solid and a liquid.  Oobleck is a bit messy, but it is one of the coolest introductory-level experiments and much fun!

Grades 1 to 3                                                        Limit: 10 students

Each class requires separate registration, opening two weeks prior to the class.

Sign up for Oobleck by calling 973-635-0603 or online right here.

Registration limited to Chatham residents only.

Spanish Flu of 1918 in the Chathams and Its Lessons for Us Today

Brought to you by the Chatham Historical Society and

the Chatham Township Historical Society

Since March our lives here in the Chathams and elsewhere have been disrupted and overturned by the current pandemic.  Most of us know someone who has been ill or lost a loved one; job cutbacks, the cancellation of public events, and social isolation are features of our current society.  Sometimes we wonder if our lives will ever be as they once were.
This is not the first time our communities have suffered adversity.  The 1918 influenza epidemic was tragic and difficult.  Please join us for an online discussion, as leaders of our Borough and Township Historical Societies discuss the 1918 influenza.  We will touch on how it affected our towns, in what ways it was similar or different to what we are going through today, and what lessons we can learn from it.

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.

For high school students ages 14 and up.  Click here to sign up, request a copy of the book, and receive the Zoom link before the meeting.
