Whiz Bang is a science show so exciting it will make your hair stand up on end.

Whiz bang of a science show

Join the Campbell River Library branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) on Monday, July 18 at 2:30 p.m. for Glenn Kachmar’s Whiz Bang Show

Join the Campbell River Library branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) on Monday, July 18 at 2:30 p.m. for Glenn Kachmar’s Whiz Bang Show.

In the Whiz Bang Show, things implode and explode. Occasionally they explode first and then implode, disappear, spin around (including the audience), shoot up into the air, fly through the room (including raw eggs), support much more weight than seems likely and occasionally crash (harmlessly) into the audience.

This free show is for elementary school-aged children, and is part of the VIRL’s exciting Summer Reading Club. The theme this year is “Savour Each Word” and they have a summer full of reading and fun planned for independent readers.  There is also a Read to Me Club for preschoolers.

For more information on the Whiz Bang Show and other Summer Reading Club activities, please phone 250-287-3655 or visit www.virl.bc.ca. The library is located at 1240 Shoppers Row, Campbell River.
