The Fort Saskatchewan Public Library (FSPL) hosted Let's Talk Science today (August 19).
 
Kids were invited to drop by and work on interesting science experiments alongside the volunteers of Let's Talk Science from the University of Alberta.
 
Four separate stations with four different discoveries were available to check out.
 
The goal of the program is to encourage kids to start thinking out of the box at a young age and see what potential career options are open to them in the future.
 
"Let's Talk Science group has stopped in here at the library for the second time, they stop in to show off some awesome and engaging science experiments that keep the kids excited," explained Samantha Sutherland, the children and adult programmer at the FSPL. "The first time they came, it was geared to chemistry style experiments. This time it is geared towards forensics." 
 
It is the final class that Let's Talk Science currently has planned with the FSPL, however Sutherland believes that there will be more classes in the future.
