Westborough – The Sciencetellers visited the Westborough Public Library July 21 ?to perform their show, “Dragons & Dreams: The Science of Fire & Ice.”

The New Jersey- based group visits children in schools, libraries, festivals and other gatherings to present an interactive show featuring storytelling, comedy, and science experiments.

Approximately 75 people visited the Children's Room at the library to watch the performance. The show told a story of dragons and big dreams, while incorporating a variety of fun science experiments. Some children in the audience were chosen to help Shoshana, the Scienceteller, with the experiments. Those chosen experimented with dry ice's ability to produce bubbles and ethanol's ability to make fire.

The show was a hit with both kids and adults alike. Shoshana kept the room light with her high energy and jokes.
