Science made fun at Omaha Public Library

The Nebraska Science Festival (NE SciFest) is a statewide science celebration designed to make science accessible, interactive, relevant and fun for all ages. Events will take place across Nebraska April 5-28 to help people engage in science-related activities and stimulate curiosity in the world around them. Many of these events are taking place at Omaha Public Library locations. All library programs are free to attend, though some have age recommendations and registration requirements.
