Animal Embassy, . Rainforest Lullaby with Animal Embassy Nature- Animals,
Nature- Environment,
Science
Join Animal Embassy for a night-time voyage through the rainforest. After the sun sets in the rainforest, a new cast of characters arrives. Many animals try to lay low while night-time predators are on the hunt, and a symphony of sounds abounds in the rainforest! The jaguar roars; the owl hoots, the boa constrictor slithers through the trees in search or prey, the tarantula strengthens its web to ensnare many of the insects of the night, the tortoise burrows underground to escape the prowling jaguar, the sugar glider hunts for flies and other small creatures, the walking stick cleverly mimics the branch or plant it sits upon to avoid detection. Animal Embassy will bring the night-time story of the rainforest to life with living examples of its many jungle characters! Meet a Red-foot tortoise, a Pink-toed tarantula, a Boa constrictor, a Sugar glider, and more!

Find out how the shape of a birds beak decides what it can eat. Participants pretend to be birds to test different models of bird beaks. By using their 'beaks' (spoons, chopsticks, tweezers) students attempt to pick up various types of food. This is a fun way to understand adaptation and biodiversity! Participants take home the materials & directions to make their own bird feeder.

Science Stories, Amy Gargiulo Science Stories Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Discover the Science in Every Story with Science Stories Science can be found in every story your child reads. Some scientific concepts are apparent, while others are hidden deeper within the pages of the story. During a Science Stories workshop, your child will be entertained through reading their favorite stories, then educated through a hands-on scientific experiment or a demonstration of a scientific concept found within the story. We will bring our Science Stories workshops right to your door! Each workshop is created to meet the educational standards and interests of children in Grades 3-6. All workshops can be modified for younger grades. Book a workshop for your library, elementary school, after-school center or camp today.

Science
**Weather Wonders** Wind, Water, and Heat are the three components of weather. Your mini meteorologists attempt to learn the mysteries behind our weather patterns. 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.

Lawrence, Ted Dr. Quinton Quark Presents... The Notion of Motion! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Science
Dr. Quinton Quark Presents… The Notion of Motion is a rollicking rollercoaster of physics demonstrations teaching about Newton’s Laws of Motion (Inertia, Force & Acceleration, Action & Reaction), how to use a hypothesis, and units. Using extensive audience participation the audience will learn why plates stay on a table when the table cloth is yanked away, why they need to buckle their seatbelts, and why not to walk around in a canoe. Finally, the audience will demonstrate their mastery of the new physics concepts by figuring out what will happen and how each of Newton’s Laws are demonstrated if Dr. Quark discharges a fire extinguisher while wearing roller blades. This show is most often performed for elementary schools; one audience of k – 2 (60 minutes) and another audience of 3 – 6 (70 – 75 minutes). This show is an excellent refresher for the science portions of all the standardized science tests. The Notion of Motion has appeared internationally in Singapore and Afghanistan. This program is written and presented by Ted Lawrence, certified veteran physics and chemistry teacher and former Ringling Bros. clown.
