WONDER AND THE WORLD
Ages 6 - 9
Every other Tuesday: October 22, November 5, November 19, December 3
3pm - 6pm
Storytelling through art and science.
In this workshop we'll explore the intersection of science, story and creativity: in the sky, in our dreams, in plants and bodies and across geological time.
We’ll create a magical and storied environment to explore the scientific world around us, with our hands and with all of our senses: digging through layers of ancient rocks, looking at our cells through microscopes, building dioramas, making sunprints, creating our own mythologies and constellations. Weaving together scientific exploration, storytelling, and making, this is an adventure into the micro and the macro of the world's phenomena, from ants to infinity (and beyond).
