(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The downtown library hosted Bayer Animal Health for their Making Science Make Sense program.  Kids got to make their own ice cream and eat the end result.  Bayer travels around to different schools demonstrating science experiments.  Kids ages 5-18 are able to take part in these experiments.  More than 30 kids were in attendance Saturday and they started 45 minutes early due to people waiting and ready to go.

"Trying to get more kids interested in math and science and try to put it out there that anybody can be a scientist no matter what your background is and we're just making it fun," said Kari Harper of Bayer Animal Health.

Bayer does one event a month.  The program is being revamped so that visits can be made to more schools in St. Joseph and Kansas City.  After the program is over, many kids begin googling experiments that they can do on their own.
