Mad Scientist Madame Chaos at Literacy Park
Fizz, Boom, Read! summer reading programs continues the science theme this week in Literacy Park. Madame Chaos, a member of Portland’s Mad Science team, whips up experiments and fun this Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. All children and families are invited to attend this free program.
“The purpose of what we do is to show kids that learning about science is fun,” Madame Chaos says. “In fact, it is the most fun subject that anyone can even imagine.”
Madame Chaos has been with the Portland franchise of Mad Science for about five years. “My background, you ask? I have a degree in psychology, which helps in this line of work - but my first love is science. Loving science, loving the kids, and having fun, is what it's all about.”
This summer program is sponsored in part by Ready to Read grant funds from the Oregon State Library and the Sylvia Beach Hotel.
