Interactive Science Show For Kids

The interactive science storytellers otherwise known as the Sciencetellers will be presenting a show at the Parkville Branch Library in New Hyde Park on Thursday, Dec. 26. The Sciencetellers teach science to the kids in their audience by telling a lively, interactive and exciting story. At each of these shows, members of the audience are encouraged to volunteer and help the performers present their storytelling experiments and tricks to demonstrate their knowledge. The theme of the show was "Dragons and Dreams."

 

The show ran from 2:30 to 3:15 p.m. at 10 Campbell Street, New Hyde Park. For more information about upcoming shows featuring the Sciencetellers, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or call 908-334-2525.

A fatal car accident on Tuesday, Aug. 19 that claimed the life of a 55-year-old man on Covert Avenue in New Hyde Park could fast-track a $250,000 Nassau County project announced last month to install traffic calming features along the road. The project would run north from Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park, south to Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont.

“The project is already ongoing and will continue to progress,” said Nassau County Department of Public Works rep Michael Martino.

The Association of Generational Experts for Seniors (AGES) is accepting nominations for “Savvy Senior” citizens, now through Sunday, Aug. 31.

Sports

Students at Charles Water Karate & Fitness, located at 122 Hillside Ave. in Williston Park, recently participated in a talent show at the school. This was a great way to not only show their talent but to go out of their every day comfort zone and perform in front of an audience. 

 

Charles Water’s Karate & Fitness is a full-time, professional martial arts school, with classes for children, adults and teenagers. 

The New Hyde Park Firecats defeated Huntington’s HBC Sudden Impact in a shootout in the Girls-Under-13 State Open Cup final recently. After tying 1-1 in regulation, New Hyde Park advanced from the shootout, 3-1. 

 

New Hyde Park’s Izzy Glennon beat three defenders and chipped the HBC keeper to equalize after HBC’s Ryan Conway scored in the first half.
