**Let's Look Closely** Children will discover a world that they might not have realized was there through the use of mirrors, microscopes and magnifying glasses. They will reveal hidden pictures learn about reflection and symmetry and use hand held microscopes to observe objects closely. They will take away plastic magnifying glasses to continue their exploration at home. 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.

Justa, Dan TakeItApart Life Skills- Other,
Taking stuff apart is a whole lot of fun. Once you realize any and everything is basically just big kid legos, a whole new world is revealed. We dissect frogs and pigs in middle and high school to see how their insides work, why not do the same with electronics? Lets demystify the technology, and get rid of that "I am going to break it if I take it apart" stigma. We want to run a basic TIA workshop where we will walk students (or anyone really) through the dissection and then reassembly of an age appropriate electronic device. We will provide the devices to be taken apart We will provide the tools to take apart the devices with As the we walk students through the disassembly, we will discuss how the different components are made, what they do, and how they work.

The tragedy shocked the world and, through the years, the legend of this story has continued to grow. Seventy three years after the sinking, the wreck of the Titanic was discovered 2 ½ miles below the surface by an intrepid group of Oceanographers using state of the art technology.
