DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Are you looking for fun and educational activities for your kids to attend this summer? The Darlington County Library System may be the solution.

Darlington, Hartsville, Lamar, and Society Hill's libraries are offering a summer reading program called, "Fizz, Boom, Read". This program inspired the library system to implement a new challenge:"Take the STEM Badge Challenge" -- It's a dynamic summer reading program that gives children and parents the opportunity to explore S(cience), T(echnology), E(ngineering), and M(ath) activities.

There are various activities available for families to work on together. When you prove that you have completed the activity you are then eligible to earn a badge.

"The children grin from ear-to ear when they present the proof of their exploration. Caregivers are appreciative that we are partnering to fill their children's summer with fun, educational activities bringing science to life," said Darlington Branch Children's Librarian, Liz Davis.

These activities include the "Magic Ketchup Packet Experiment", "Grow Your Own Sparkling Crystals", "Make an Electromagnet", "Build a Newspaper Tower", "Balloon Amplifier," "Action-Reaction: the Balloon Rocket!," "CD Hovercraft," "Incredible Hoop Glider Airplane!," "Seven Pieces of Cleverness," "What's in Your Wallet?," "Measurement Scavenger Hunt!," and "Bowling for Numbers".

These activities are open to students from pre-school age to high school. Each branch will offer four STEM activity kits to parents this summer.
