Tomorrow: It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane!






Okay, closer, but still not quite right…one more time…




We will be learning about aerodynamics – specifically how and why planes can fly, and crafting our own paper flying machines to determine which types of planes fly the furthest and fastest.

There is still some room left in the program so feel free to register now!

Tomorrow: Shrink Jewelry!

Not a walrus...I did my best to find one with no luck.

Tomorrow at the Branch Library from 2:30 to 4 PM we will be shrinking stuff!

That’s right! We’ll be making our own Shrinky Dink-style pieces, which can then be fashioned into jewelry, key chains, or anything else you can imagine.

Shrinky Dinks were created by two moms, Betty Morris and Katie Bloomberg, in a kitchen in Wisconsin. $150 million dollars later, shrinking plastic has gone from a kids activity to a serious crafting enterprise – just take a look around on Etsy! Amazingly, it has also led to important medical innovations!

Tomorrow: Conquer the Drop!

Tomorrow from 2:30 – 4 PM at the Main Library we will be…dropping stuff.

Sounds awesome, right?!? It’s not too late to get in on the action.


Like this cat, we will be dropping eggs from high up. Well, actually, we will be creating containers to drop them over 30 feet down to a cement floor with one goal in mind: To prevent the precious little egg inside from breaking.

This one’s not gonna make it…

Along the way, we’ll be talking about this guy:

That hair, though...

Which means building, testing, and fixing our contraptions as we go.

No omelets! (We hope…) Register now!
