Doc Atoms to bring ‘Weird Science’ to Luverne Library

He’s a mad scientist (in the best kind of way) who travels through time, space (and Georgia and Alabama). Sporting his goggles and his white lab coat, this genial gentleman is coming to a library near you soon to share his special kind of wackiness.

He’s Doc Atoms, and he is slated to make his second appearance at the Luverne Public Library next Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 4 p.m. The good doctor will be sharing his “Weird Science” presentation, incorporating STEM-based science activities with a special Halloween twist. Every experiment at “Weird Science” is said to be designed to both scare you senseless—and make you laugh.

“Doc Atoms was at our library for our summer reading program,” says library director Kathryn Tomlin. “He was absolutely hilarious and I can only imagine how fun he will be for Halloween!”

Doc Atoms, aka Eric Willis, loves all things related to science and enjoys the opportunity to teach both children and adults about the wonders of learning and experimentation. His favorite word is “why?”

“I love ‘why’ because it’s a curious word that makes us want to explore,” says Doc Atoms.

Doc Atoms and Tomlin both promise a program filled with fun, laughter and learning–with a spooky twist–on Oct. 17.

“This is truly a program that kids and adults alike can enjoy. We are really looking forward to having lots of people turn out for ‘Weird Science’ with Doc Atoms,” says Tomlin.
