Library to Present Science Story Show on August 27

Mayor Mark A. Smith announced that the Bayonne Free Public Library will host a science story show to mark the end of the summer season. On Tuesday, August 27, at 11:00 a.m., Piccirillo Sciencetelling will perform a program called “Bugs of Blackwood” in the O’Connor Gallery on the second floor of the library. The program is open to all Bayonne children.
“Bugs of Blackwood” tells the story of Benjamin, who has a good life living on Blackwood Avenue. Most of his neighbors are friendly. He has a big family that is always there to help him. However, all of this is about to change when Benjamin has an accident. Benjamin is a bug, and now he must be rescued. By using experiments with fire, gas, air pressure, and water, see if Benjamin’s friends can save him before all hope is squashed.
Piccirillo Sciencetelling is a New Jersey-based organization offering interactive programs that use science experiments to tell stories. Through a combination of science and storytelling, Piccirillo Sciencetelling engages, educates, and entertains the audience.
The library is located at 31st Street and Avenue C.
