TAMS students create science experiment boxes for Denton children

Denton parents can build volcanoes and simulate lunar eclipses after school or on weekends with their children, thanks to science experiment boxes now available at Denton Public Library locations.

Students in the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science program created the boxes, which are ideal for children ages 4-10 and are now available for check out at Denton Public Library locations.

The students will be recognized for their work with an official proclamation by Denton Mayor Mark Burroughs at the Feb. 18 Denton City Council meeting.

The experiments will help make science more accessible and fun, said Annabel Wang, a TAMS student who helped create the boxes.

“We created experiments that cover all areas of science, including chemistry, physics and biology,” Wang said. “Children will be able to learn about plants, genetics, geology, anatomy, outer space and more.” 

TAMS students will host three “Science Hour” events at library locations throughout February to show parents how to use the boxes and introduce children to various scientific concepts. The events will be held:

  • 4 p.m. Feb. 7 at North Branch Library
  • 4 p.m. Feb. 18 at South Branch Library
  • 4 p.m. Feb. 28 at Emily Fowler Central Library
