Little Edisons – Shadows: Everybody Has One!

Click Here to Register

November 3, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm EDT

Join us to read Moonbear’s Shadow by Frank Asch and watch as Moonbear tries to escape it, but he can’t! Then we’ll break out the flashlights and look at our own shadows. What makes shadows shorter? What makes them longer? Learn that during winter, the sun is farther away and shadows will be longer. Then act out Moonbear’s story with your own storyboards and take home a tracing of the shadow of our hand.

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 to encourage the joy of discovery. Little Edisons takes place Wednesdays, from 12 to 12:45 p.m., and Saturdays, from 10 to 10:45 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. Hands-on materials are included.
