On March 8th at our Makerspace Monday, we explored the moon and learned a thing or two about chemistry. Isn’t the moon marvelous! We discovered the science of mixing together self-rising flour with a few sprinkles of water and made puffy paint by using a microwave. Did you know that earth is 4 times bigger than the moon and 12 people have once landed on the moon? We always learn a lot @ the Playground!
Next, on March 20th for our STEM and Stories Saturday our very special library friend Dan Chibnall, from Drake University, treated our senses with actual sounds of the spacecraft called Perseverance. We actually felt like we were on Mars! Not only that, but Dan shared stories of the Red Planet itself, MARS. Did you know that an astronaut’s suit weighs around 75 pounds, wow, can you imagine wearing that to school? Thank you Dan for sharing your story of space, we hope to see you again soon.
Coming up next month on April 12th for the Makerspace Monday Event, we will not only discover the magic of feathers but get ready to tie, trim as you assemble the Feathery Macramé craft! You will learn to turn yarn into wall art just one feather at a time. On April 17th did someone say, “meow” or “ruff-ruff”? For our STEM and Stories Saturday, we will meet our friends from the Animal Rescue League as they share their furry stories of wagging tails and kindness!
