This Saturday (Oct. 22) at 11:00 am local author, Linda Zajac, presents a lively interactive STEM program. Participants will move like robots, hear stories about biomimicry, learn how an idea becomes a book, and watch real robots as they skitter, scuttle, and crawl. Afterwards, kids will make a giraffe robot that moves up and down.
Judy Handler and Mark Levesque, husband and wife duo, will play their own unique arrangements of swing, 60s-70s pop, Celtic, as well as some favorite international selections. Join us for an evening of guitar and mandolin music on Oct. 20th at 6:30 pm - you can RSVP here.
