The 2014 Summer Reading Program theme at libraries across the United States is “science,” and Nashville’s Mr. Bond and The Science Guys are excited for another summer of introducing and making science fun for kids at libraries in South Carolina, Virginia,  
Kentucky, Alabama and Tennessee. The program “Fizz, Pop, Boom,” will include tornado simulations, sound effects and optical illusions. It is perfect for kids of all ages. Some libraries will also have special programs like “Silly Science” for their preschool children which features the Hoberman’s Sphere, and “Hair Raising Excitement” which includes  hands-on electricity experiments for teens.
The Science Guy will be at the Owen County Public Library on June 25 at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Mr. Bond and The Science Guys was started by London, England born Keith Trehy, who came to the United States via a soccer scholarship with the American University in Washington, D.C. There, he earned a bachelor of science in chemistry.
Trehy now has a team of “edutainers,”  teachers and entertainers whose mission it is to show kids science is  fun.
, cool and easy. Three of the “mad scientists” who will be joining Mr.  Bond (Trehy) at various events held around the southern states this summer   include Professor Greybeard (John Wicks), Haz-Matt (Matt Simms) and Bionic Bond (Siena Trehy). Wicks is an IT professional who has a minor in theatre and spent time in Japan teaching English as a second language. Haz-Matt  (Simms) is a Nashville musician and preschool music teacher with a love of  science. Bionic Bond is Trehy’s daughter and a Goucher College sophomore.
Admission to each show is free. Running time: approximately 45 minutes. More information and updates are available at mrbondscienceguy.com or by calling  (615) 573-2702.
