A Passion for Birds is a comic, interactive, educational show about adaptation. It uses realistic, handmade masks to explore how different species have evolved different shapes and behaviors to adapt to their environment. Combining his passion for nature and performance, Henry weaves through the crowd acting out the birds while explaining the hows and whys of their diverse appearances and actions. Participants get to don the masks and soar as Eagles, swim as Puffins, and stalk as Herons. Henry Lappen has been performing comedy for over 30 years. He has been an avid student of nature since childhood. In this show, he combines his love and knowledge of birds, with his comic timing, and artistry in mask making and performing. Henry studied mime, mask and clowning at California’s Dell’Arte School of Physical Comedy. He is a member of the Hampshire Bird Club and the Northeast Hawkwatch. Henry was a Great Blue Heron in a past life. In this life, he is also a tango dancer!

The audience is treated to consorts of recorders, of curious crumhorns, historical bagpipes both loud and soft, and a mysteriously ancient gemshorn. As you enjoy this exploration of historic instruments, marvel at the wonderful ways human kind has used wood, animal horn, reed, leather, and ingenuity to invent instruments that create a rainbow of musical sounds. These two complementary programs unite to appeal to all the senses, a memorable and meaningful feast for the eyes, ears, and imagination! For EARTHDAY and ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS EVENTS, the artists can also explore mankind’s long partnership with the wind as energy, and how cultures around the world have shaped, utilized, and interacted with wind’s many powers and wonders.

Get Ready – we’re going to construct and build a real dinosaur dig! Field Paleontologists Mike and Roberta Straka will construct a dinosaur dig site right in your library. Imagine the excitement as your summer reading patrons get a chance to dig for REAL dinosaur bones. Next, we will identify the bones and finally, they will place the fossils on a Triceratops cut out. They will actually build a Triceratops with the bones that they discover. It’s been over 10 ten years since we offered this hands-on presentation. In addition, before each dig, Mike will present a 30-minute interactive fossil talk to get our Jr. Paleontologists ready to go on their dig. During the talk, Mike will cover how and where we find fossils. He will show some of our amazing discoveries from the time of the dinosaurs to the time of the ice age. As a special bonus, after the dig each patron can spend time looking at our expanded fossil museum. Rare and unusual fossils that we have discovered will be on display. Fossils will come to life in this fun-filled adventure.

Scientist and award-winning author Steve The Dirtmeister Tomecek takes a slightly serious look at the science behind many of the sports that kids love to play. The program features over a dozen interactive demonstrations which are safe enough for kids to try themselves. We begin with a look at athletes and why reaction time and hand-eye coordination is so important.

Cobb, Vicki Science and Arts Surprises Literature- Authors,
Multicultural- Other,
Science
Vicki Cobb's SCIENCE SURPRISES is a highly entertaining fast paced, one woman show that is guaranteed to captivate kids and their teachers. She sets the stage with poetry and a short video of her trip to East Africa when she researched her book This Place is Wild. Then she answers the question, Why science, anyhow? by showing how our senses and experiences limit how much we can learn of the universe and that science is a way of getting past our limitations. Instead of showing the audience the world of science, Vicki invites the audience to discover the science in their world. Everyone in the audience experiences illusions and individuals participate in doing irresistible challenges from her best selling books Bet You Can! and Bet You Can't! Most importantly, Vicki's program gets kids excited and enthusiastic about science, reading and poetry and she gives teachers a list of suggestions for follow-up activities
