It is not too late to join the Hive13 member volunteers who are busy this summer providing "DIY Polymers with Hive13" events for the Cincinnati Public Library Summer Learning Program.

A series of ten Kitchen Chemistry events are already underway per a schedule at different library branch locations between June 9 and July 26. The series was instigated by member LorinP, and receives financial support from the Friends of the Public Library. Members MikeH and DustinB have provided Kitchen Chemistry protocols (written instructions) on how to mix up polymer bouncy balls and extract DNA from strawberries as hands-on activities and summer fun for kids and their parents.

Here is the schedule of sessions:

01 = Thursday, June 9, 2-3 PM at the Elmwood Place branch library (map)

02 = Saturday, June 11, 11-12 AM at the Delhi Township branch library (map)
