“Mad Science!” Comes
To Capitol Hill Library

Ever met a real mad scientist?  Do you want to?

The Metropolitan Library System and Science Museum Oklahoma were working in the lab late one night so your eyes could behold the eerie sight of “Mad Science!”  Blast off for the Capitol Hill Library, 334 S.W. 26th Street on Wednesday, May 26, 2:00-3:00p.m. for a fun-filled hour of chemistry gone right.

“The program is for all ages,” said librarian Jennifer Jones.  “Chris Wilkerson from Science Museum Oklahoma will be here to mix, mash and create to show everyone just what it takes to be a real mad scientist.”

Science Museum Oklahoma began in 1958 and for years was known by a name most citizens of central Oklahoma will remember: Omniplex.  The name was changed in 2007, and since then the museum has expanded both its exhibits and its extension education program.

“Mad Science!” is free and open to the public.  For more information, please call the Capitol Hill Library at (405) 634-6308.  For information about this and other MLS programs, visit the library’s website, www.metrolibrary.org.
