Teens, ages 11 to 18, will have the opportunity to make some oobleck (it’s a substance!), take part in a robot battle, have a teen chef competition, perform in the annual teen talent show and much more. In addition, teens can turn in reading logs for a chance to win prizes at the end of summer! Visit our teen page for a list of related events and activities.
