Perfect for your pre-schooler, STORYBOOK SCIENCE features a story time and take-home craft. Storybook Science is held on the first Saturday of each month at 10:30 a.m. This program is free for Science Museum members, and included in the regular museum admission for non-members.
The stories we choose provide a fun, engaging way to experience a variety of STEM topics (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). The crafts provide a chance to explore the topic more directly as well as promoting motor skill practice. We try to include supplemental material to investigate such as tools used by scientists in that field or objects to examine with magnifying glasses or microscopes.
This month, we have an extra-special guest! Author Lisa Connors will be here to read her book Oliver’s Otter Phase! “What child hasn’t wondered what it would be like to be an animal, able to hop, fly, or slither with ease? After a trip to an aquarium, Oliver decides he wants to be a sea otter. Oliver tries to copy sea otter behavior at meals, while playing, during a trip to the store, and at bath time. However, during the course of the day, Oliver discovers that he just doesn’t have the same adaptations. Being an otter isn’t easy for a human. What’s an otter—we mean, a boy—to do?”
Join us this Saturday to help us investigate OTTERS with Lisa Connors!
