On Thursday, Sept. 28, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., the Menlo Park Library will be hosting its fifth Science Night for adults, teens and elementary school-aged children. Attendees will be able to visit the various demonstration and exhibit stations at their own pace during this free event sponsored by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. The Children’s Discovery Museum will present several tables of activity demonstrating “Toy Box Physics,” while the San Francisco Zoo plays a “Who Chews? You Choose” game to help visitors discover the feeding adaptations of some very different animals. The Aquarium of the Bay will bring its Bay Mobile with its touch tank, and the San Francisco Bay Bird Institute will present a bird banding activity. M-A Robotics makes its first appearance, showcasing a robotic catapult, while the SETI Institute talks about our possible neighbors out there in the universe. Science Made Fun will be offering some amazing hands-on chemistry, and MV Code will be bringing two student project demos, including a 3-D roller coaster game.
