GET STEAM! explores the links between STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) while presenting the process by which I create children's books--including research, photography, and writing. Using images from my books, BUG SHOTS, MOSQUITO BITE, and SNEEZE!, I introduce students to hidden worlds magnified and photographed by an electron microscope. In depth observation of a variety of specimens is accomplished with a 5X jeweler's loupe provided to each workshop participant. Students explore how they can use observation to to inspire their own creative-nonfiction writing.

Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Adventures in Air (Preschool Workshop) Other,
Science
**Adventures in Air** Preschoolers will learn that even though air is invisible it is all around them all the time. They will also learn that air has the power to both move items and to slow them down. They will also experiment with a variety of items that rely on the air to help them move, and they will put together their own airplane. These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
