In honor of National Chemistry Week our library had the Festival of Science and Art: Chemistry--It's Elemental! today.
Of course we had to go.Funny how I used to resent our New Library, as it was so metro, and not like a library at all... but now I'm rather fond of the giant steel and glass conglomeration. I suppose not all libraries need to be musty and aged and silent. :)
Trevelyn was slow to get into the thing at first, but we had a fine time!
There were lots of tables that featured particular elements, and information on them.
We got to experiment
and explore.Like up to the roof. Where we can see lots of the city.
We also got to play with sound.... we love speaking into the discs, and have them carry perfectly clearly over to the other side of the square! Sound has many fine tricks. :)
And we checked out a very large pile of library books.
Many filled with experiments.
And many more filled with dinosaurs.
We came home to more investigationsand cleaning
and computer play
Good enough for us.
We'll prob'ly see you tomorrow.
