Aliens: Escape From Planet Earth
An Interactive Science & Storytelling Program
Presented by the ScienceTellers

The Bedford Public Library System proudly welcomes a new group to our annual Summer Reading Program line up – the ScienceTellers!  ScienceTellers have performers across the country who use storytelling to make science fun and understandable for young children.
This summer the story is all about aliens trying to escape planet Earth!   

Story
During a midnight meteor shower, something mysterious falls from the sky toward Earth — but it’s not a shooting star. Two curious kids venture into the forest to investigate and find themselves mixed up with a family of visitors from another planet! Pursued by a crazy space scientist, they must risk everything to rescue the aliens and get them back to their spaceship — before it’s too late!

 

Science
Throughout this amazing intergalactic story, we use science experiments to bring the story to life! In the second part of the show, we go “behind the scenes” of the special effects and recreate the science experiments with the help of volunteers from the audience.

Discover the unbelievable world of physics and chemistry through exciting experiments, like:

  • Turning a liquid into solid “worms” through a chemical reaction.

  • Launching a potato into the air using Boyle’s law.

  • Making a flying rocket using two common household chemicals.

  • Transferring energy between matter to create a “rainstorm.”

  • And much more!

Don’t miss this action-packed and educational alien adventure using science experiments for special effects. It’s totally out of this world!
