Celebrate National Science Week with activities at Erina Library for preschool and primary aged children, to encourage them to become fascinated with the world around them. 

From 10.30am, join us for a dinosaur-themed science preschool storytime with Michael.

At 11.15am, catch Ruben Meerman, 'The Surfing Scientist' - an ABC TV Science presenter and children's science author. Ruben is a surfer with a physics degree and a passion for science and education. His energetic style, clear explanations and humour entertain audiences, while igniting their natural curiosity and blasting outdated stereotypes out of the water.
