The free event will be held on Thursday, August 27 at 2:30 on Crowdcast.

A modern-day Magic School Bus for chapter book readers!

Violet and Pablo are best friends who love science! So when they discover a riddle that opens a magic portal in the Science Space at school, they can’t wait to check it out! Along with their new classmate, Deepak, the friends discover a magical makerspace called the Maker Maze. It’s a laboratory full of robots, 3D printers, an antigravity chamber, and more. Doors line the walls of the makerspace, with a new science adventure waiting behind each one.

Neuroscientist and author Theanne Griffith will read from her newest book in The Magnificent Makers series and show us a fun experiment for kids to do at home!

Since Theanne Griffith was a little girl, she’s loved both storytelling and science. Her books blend these two passions, taking young readers on out-of-this-world adventures they’ll never forget. The first two books in her series, How to Test a Friendship and Brain Trouble are currently available. The third book in The Magnificent Makers series, Riding Sound Waves, is slated for release on September 8th, 2020.

Both entertaining and educational, this is a perfect event to get young readers ready to go back to school and show parents easy ways to boost science skills at home. The event is free. Register at
