Whiz Bang will surprise, amaze

Children are invited to the Courtenay Library Saturday for a science show with special guest Glenn Kachmar.

WHIZ BANG SCIENCE experiments are Glenn Kachmar’s specialty.

Children of all ages are invited to the Courtenay Library branch this Saturday at 10:30 am for a free spring break science show with special guest Glenn Kachmar.

Glenn will surprise and amaze children with his Whiz Bang science experiments. The Whiz Bang Show is named after what tends to happen.

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.

In this show Glenn will make Elephant Toothpaste and Glowing Liquids along with many other amusing scientific phenomena.

“I have been called a world traveller, the Science Guy, Mr. K. and a lot of stuff I can’t mention, but I like to think of myself as a student of life,” says Glenn.

“We call him Mr. Fabulous,” says Mary Donlan, children’s librarian at the Courtenay Library.

The Whiz Bang Show is free and all are invited to attend. For more information, contact Mary Donlan at 250-334-3369.
