The experiment this summer will be to see how many books you can read (if you can pull yourself away from your laboratory.) All teens under 18 in the city are challenged to join the Mad Scientist Club—read books, perform crazy experiments, and become a science wiz. The more minutes you read, the more levels you unlock. Completing some levels will unlock bonus prizes. Can you get to the final level by the end of the summer? Grab your lab coat—and start to read like mad!
Build your own book club kit by checking out as many copies as you need and downloading discussion questions. Copies can be checked out for 6 weeks (plus one 3-week renewal).
