Old Bridge, NJ – Dec. 10, 2018 – The Old Bridge Public Library will host its annual Winterfest celebration on Thursday, December 27th from 11-2pm.
This year, the popular family event will feature a Mad Science Winter program beginning at 11am, with a 45-minute presentation highlighting the Mad Scientist’s wintry science experiments. Known for their unique, hands-on science experiences for children that are as entertaining as they are educational, Mad Science playfully explores important STEM concepts. Through a mixture of science and magic, children will see a playing card vanish only to reappear again neatly gift-wrapped. The program will also demonstrate a Snowman being de-frosted and Jack Frost filling an eight-foot air bag with one breath. As a grand finale, the Mad Scientist will explore how a mysterious North Pole rock that turns out to be Dry Ice can be used to make bubbling potions, shivering quarters and clouds of fog.
In addition to the Mad Science presentation, Winterfest will also offer a wide array of games, crafts, holiday refreshments, and plenty of activities for all ages. Young patrons will also have the chance to win prizes and get temporary tattoos. Winterfest has been highly attended in the past, so families are encouraged to arrive early in order to take full advantage of all the event offers.
