**Let's Measure** Preschoolers will learn the basics of measurement during this workshop when they get to measure all kinds of objects using balance beam scales, bathroom scales and even their own feet! Children will be introduced to the concept of estimation and take home a measuring foot to cut out with their parents. 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.

Kuhn, Lindsay Dig In Life Skills- Food,
Nature- Gardening,
Science
Smoke Ridge Farm is an organic sustainable farm in upstate NY. Using a modified square foot garden method, we plant enough food to feed 40 families on just 5 acres. During the program, the presenter will help patrons plant their own square foot garden, using heirloom seeds. An alternative will be to use a box demo garden to inspire patrons of all ages to be aware of where their food comes from and to eat local. I will also talk about farming green (using real live horse power), heirloom seeds and seed saving, do it yourself vertical hydroponics, environmental conservation using butterflies, and horse rescue and rehabilitation. This program is suitable for the 2014 summer reading program.

Boyer, Jeff The Science of Magic Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Science
THE SCIENCE OF MAGIC. Arthur C. Clark once wrote that “sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” and today we live in the age of technology. We are surrounded by magic. In the first half of this show “Boyer the Magnificent” entertains and amazes us with several classic magic illusions. Objects change colors, light bulbs blaze to life with no apparent power source, and spheres levitate before us. Is this magic? “Professor Boyer” says “No!” In the second half of the show he performs these same feats using the tools of modern technology. Explaining laws of physics as he goes, the professor teaches the audience the principles that make these astounding demonstrations possible. Throughout the show volunteers are brought up on stage to participate in an event that amuses, amazes, educates and entertains.
