ScienceTellers - Wild West: The Mystery of the Golden Piano

Join us for the 2018 Summer Reading Games, sign up for the reading games starts from June 4 to August 7th. 

You have to sign up for the Games to join the shows. Registration for the kick-off show- ScieceTellers starts June 18 online.

Here's what the WIld West show is about:

Grab your spurs and journey with us to the Wild West, where a legendary bank-robbing outlaw is back in town, about to strike again! After the Sheriff mysteriously vanishes, two young kids must saddle up to foil the great heist — but not before stopping a runaway train, escaping an abandoned mine shaft and discovering how a mysterious piano can play an ‘instrumental’ part in putting a rotten cowboy back behind bars.

Throughout this absolutely wild adventure story, volunteers from the audience will help us explore the fascinating science behind chemical reactions, acids and bases, combustion, air pressure, inertia and more. Don’t miss this classic action-packed western with ‘notes’ of science!
