Mad Science of Greater Kansas City and Southwest Missouri is presenting a brand new show in Atchison County on Thursday, June 16, 2016. The show, On Your Mark. . . Get Set. . . READ, Rube Goldberg Style, will be presented in Tarkio at 1:30 p.m. at the Tarkio Community Building. Atchison County Library sponsors this event as a kick off to their July reading programs for children.
Reading Rube Goldberg Style involves a Mad Scientist who will be bringing to life an interactive Rube Goldberg Machine™ that will set off hilarious chain reactions with a simple goal in mind: to open a book! What a great event to inspire children to the life-long adventure of reading. Mad Science programs are designed for kids of all ages; however, children ages 5 and under must be accompanied by an adult. This program is free of charge and open to the public.
On Your Mark. . . Get Set. . . READ, Rube Goldberg Style will be presented two additional times on Thursday, June 16. You can see the program at 10:00 a.m. at the Memorial Building in Rock Port or 3:30 p.m. at the Fairfax School Cafeteria. Atchison County Library Director Janice Rosenbohm encourages parents, grandparents, and caregivers to take their children to see these unique and entertaining programs. “I’ve been very pleased with Mad Science programming the past three years. It’s good family fun and why miss any opportunity that encourages or inspires your child to READ!”
