November 2, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm EDT

Little Edisons read the beloved book Moonbear’s Shadow by award-winning author Frank Asch and watch as the little bear tries to escape his shadow but can’t! Then participants break out their flashlights and look at their own shadow and discover what makes it shorter or longer. Then they act out Moonbear’s story, learn how the position of the sun overhead changes their shadow, and create a shadow to trace!

miSci’s Little Edisons program, for kids ages 3 to 5, is fun way to nurture the curiosity of pint-sized future engineers, chemists, and inventors. Sessions are 45 minutes long and feature hands-on activities designed to teach problem solving and encourage the joy of discovery. Little Edisons takes place Wednesdays, from 12 to 12:45 p.m., and Saturdays, from 11 to 11:45 a.m. The fee is $12 per child for non-members and $10 for Members. Adults accompanying a child are not required to purchase an additional ticket. Materials are included.
