LEAP into Science and Poetry

Wed, Mar 20
What is it?The City Library and NHMU are working together to help kids understand how to think like poets and scientists. The Museum's high school aged interns (from its Youth Teaching Youth program) will lead this program.Who should come?Parents and children ages 5-12 (a little younger or older is fine!).This Month's Theme: ShadowChildren intuitively know that there is a relationship between light and shadows, but they don't fully comprehend it. For example, they often say it must be dark to create shadows even though most of them have noticed and played with their shadows on a bright sunny day. Shadows are often misunderstood. This hands-on exploration of light can demystify shadows and enlighten your kids!Poets and ScientistsHow can we think like a poet?
