Egg shell geodes! The geodes pictured were made by Nate and Samirah, two of our teen summer reading participants. Click for larger pictures and captions.

Join us for some Fizzy Fun at 6pm on Tuesday, July 15th! We’ll make bath bombs, see a bottomless pit, create a soda geyser, and answer a very important question: Will your stomach really explode if you eat pop-rocks and soda?

Pusheen the cat making some chemistry.

That cat is not wearing safety goggles, he hasn’t even bothered to clean up that spilled solvent, and he is holding that Erlenmeyer flask way too close to his face.
Pusheen the Cat, more like Pusheen the limits of lab safety

It’s happened to all of us. You pick up a book you’ve been looking forward to, a “smart” book that everyone and their mother has loved, settle down with it, start reading, and …

You hate it.

Or maybe you don’t hate it, but you certainly don’t love it like everyone else seems to. And you can’t help but ask yourself, “Is it me? Am I just not smart enough for this book?”

from On The Perils of Feeling Dumb While Reading by Swapna Krishna (via bookriot)

I always tell myself (or others who have come to me with this concern): it’s not the right book for you right now. Maybe it will be someday, maybe it won’t. Let’s find you something you’ll enjoy, instead.
