Science in the sun

Town of St. Paul FCSS summer students get kids experimenting

ST. PAUL - It was a bit of a messy experience, but the Science Experiment Fun day at Crescent Park on July 30 in St. Paul was successful in engaging young minds.

Town of St. Paul FCSS summer students Ravessa Fejzullai and Lexis Ouellette helped lead the group of children through a number of science experiments. They made puffy paint, slime and mini volcanoes. 

The event is one of many upcoming events directed at young families in the community. Due to AHS guidelines, pre-registration will be required. Some are being organized by the Family Resource Network, while others are being lead by FCSS summer students.

On Aug. 4, the summer students will be hosting a Beach Day at Lagasse Park. Once again, pre-registration will be required. Then, on Aug. 6, a Minute-to-win-it challenge will be held at Spring Creek Park, also hosted by the summer students, aimed at kids between six and 10 years old. 

There is a Summer Donut Party at Lagasse Park on Aug. 7 for kids between the ages of three and six, and a rock painting event is scheduled for Aug. 12 at Glen Avon School Park. Both those events are being organized by the FRN. 

To get more information on upcoming events and register, call 780-645-5311.
