Splash! Into New York State Water Science

Thursday July 8th @ 7pm. This program is presented by Carol Smalley and in this 90-minute hands-on program, participants will experience water with their senses; perform an auditory rain-making activity (while learning about the importance of water to all living things);
croak with the frogs (including the wood frog, the state amphibian) while creating their own musical notation system to record the sounds of nature; explore the physics of water by devising a musical water xylophone (to accompany the frogs); capture a moment of water time using haiku (based on the River of Words poetry project); and experiment with Gyotaku, the Japanese art of fish printing (with a replica of a trout, the state fish).

Bonus - ice cream and strawberries after the program!

7/16 - check Carol's blog for photos of our program!
