Edgecomb, Diane Insect Comedy Nature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Insect Comedy takes a delightful look at our Six-legged friends. In Princess Firefly entertaining facts are served up along with plenty of silliness as the Princess ponders, “Who will be the bug I will love?” Kate's Acorn, one of Diane's original stories, teaches about the importance of soil creatures in the life cycle of plants. And in another backyard tale we learn about when to keep or let insects go. Diane's hilarious interpretations of Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat, Old King Lampyradie Beetle keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the world of insects. "From the Academy's point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!" Linda Wolf, Public Programs Coordinator, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, PA

Seeman, Laurie From Waterdrop to Watershed Nature- Environment,
Science,
Visual Arts- Other
Strawtown invites participants to learn fascinating and important new things about water and water habitats through hands-on Art and Science workshops. We begin with a discussion about the many ways we use, appreciate and interact with water. We take a close look at one drop of water, and how it travels in a larger vase of water. Participants make observations about what they see. We look at how one tinted drop of water falls into a vortex of water, and participants relate this to other experiences they have with water. Participants make ink drop paintings using the same scientific materials with which we just worked. They experiment with the way the ink drop moves around on the wet and/or dry paper. With watercolor pencils they personalize their paintings. With volunteers we demonstrate what a watershed is. With different earth materials, we look at how raindrops fall onto a “mountain”, and create a watershed with tributaries, ponds, lakes, and oceans. Participants learn to see the connection between the water cycle and human activity with regard for woodlands, wetland habitats, grasslands, soil, and geology, and animal bio-diversity.
