Mad Science

Dessi Carolan experiences the effects of electrical energy when she touches an electrically charged ball operated by Mad Scientist Stephen "Super Steve" Cox at the Booneville Library Thursday afternoon. The library hosts special events on Thursday afternoons in June. This week’s agenda has not been set but on June 20 animals from the Little Rock Zoo will be on hand and on June 27, magician Tommy Terrific will appear.

Taste test. Mad Scientist Stephen "Super Steve" Cox gives children like Lily Downs (above) a taste of frozen dioxide gas during a science exhibition at the Booneville Library last Thursday.
