For students in grades 3-5. Come learn about some superheroes whose only magic powers are their amazing curiosity, creativity, and imaginations. While none of them can leap tall buildings, see through walls, or turn invisible, they all changed the world in incredibly big ways. Local mathematician Jason Schwartz teaches these sessions that feature a great scientist or inventor, and for July 9 is Cecilia Payne,  and includes the secrets of the stars, and good times with a plasma globe.
