|New Mad Science® Creepy Crawly Ecology workshop offered on Oct. 10|
The program is called Mad Science® Creepy Crawly Ecology and is for ages six to 12. Participants will use microscopes to investigate tiny parts of plants, animals and insects; create tie-dye designs using nature's colors; and play the role and develop the skills of a naturalist tracking animals in the wild. Young ecologists will discover the science of ornithology by investigating different species of birds and how they fit into their very own niches in the environment; building their own birdhouse; and creating their own blend of bird food. Participants will also learn the parts of an insect by creating their own bug model. There will be great "snacktivities" and fun "take homes." Participants should bring a sack lunch and a drink.
