Join the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire on Monday, July 21st at 10:30 at the Wells Public Library as they explore this great earth we live on.…and all of its trash! How much do you throw away a year? What are ways to make trash into something new again? Do you know what upcycling is? This interactive outreach program will explore all of these questions and more! Children will learn easy way they can help keep the earth healthy while having fun along the way. Let’s put our scientist caps on to work together, question, explore and experiment. With our newfound knowledge we can make sure this Earth doesn’t go fizz…BOOM! Our Museum educator will lead participants in an upcycling adventure using vibrant images, books, science experiments and a take-home, open ended "make it new again!” activity. This free activity is sponsored by the Friends of the Wells Public Library. Registration is required and capped at fifty participants.  For more information contact Devin Burritt at 207-646-8181 or at dburritt@wellstown.org
