Keiki Invited to Special Hardware Science Event at 19 Oahu Libraries

Dean Ramos (center), Wizard-in-Training of HouseMart Ace Hardware and HouseMart Ben Franklin Crafts, and (l-r) helpers Joy Shimabukuro and Kristane Gaspar invite Oahu keiki ages 8 and older to experience a special "Hardware Science" program at 19 selected Oahu public libraries.

In celebration of the 2014 HSPLS Children's Summer Reading Program, HouseMart Ace Hardware and HouseMart Ben Franklin Crafts will present "Hardware Science," a free event at 19 Oahu public libraries from Monday, June 2 through Saturday, July 12.

Children ages 8 and older are invited to explore all things related to science and will learn some Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math (STEAM) concepts. In this one-hour program, children will learn how to think like a scientist and experience live demonstrations including an Air Blaster and Inertia Cups which explore air currents and gravity principles, using simple equipment and tools available at hardware and craft stores.

This year's Children's Summer Reading Program theme "Fizz, Boom, Read" will allow children - preschool-age to those entering grade 6 this fall - to experiment with building lava lamps, launching rockets and creating a solar system mobile.
