Science & Nature Day at the Library This Saturday!
Join us for a day celebrating Science and Nature at the Library!
We’ll be hosting the Curiosity Cube for you to try some unique experiments and enjoy science from 1:00 – 4:00 pm outside the library!
//FREE TO ATTEND FOR KIDS AND ADULTS//
The Curiosity Cube is an unstructured learning environment equipped with the latest technology to inspire curiosity in science and technology for all. The Curiosity Cube utilizes a retrofitted shipping container that is mobile, customizable and focuses on overarching science topics.
The three experiments community members will have a chance to do center on the superpower of cells.
1. Cell Communication- learn how cells communicate within our body to perform their different responsibilities/jobs and code “signal bots” to send cell signals around the body
2. Microscopes- learn how cells create our organs and use five microscopes to find out which organ is on the microscope slide
3. Virtual Reality- Dive into one cell and learn about the organelles that make up a cell through a Virtual Reality( VR) game.
We’ll also be hosting Northeast Birds of Prey at 1:00 pm (please pre-register on our Events page)
Presented by Wing Masters
Birds of prey are also known as raptors, and they are hunting birds characterized by hooked beaks and powerful grabbing feet armed with sharp talons (the word raptor comes from a Latin word that means “to seize”)….he program is designed to explain predation, the birds’ place at the top of the food web, their different hunting adaptations and their status in a rapidly changing world. Because many birds of prey are declining in number, this presentation also features one or more of the endangered raptors that we care for, and explains why these species face an uncertain future. Open to all ages, but registration required.
We hope to see you there and spark your love of science!
