Atomic Tom makes science fun for kids


Atomic Tom, a.k.a. Tom Andry of St. Petersburg, was at the Gulfport Public Library on Monday for one of his Mad Science demonstrations.

Andry puts on his show for children from Pasco to Sarasota counties in an attempt to get them excited about learning and to create a positive experience with the principles of science.

Monday he was in Gulfport as part of the nationwide Cooperative Summer Library Program. The theme for this year's program is "Fizz, Boom, Read!" which is an effort to merge science and reading in a fun way.
