Vistor for Bear plus Owl Stories

Our friend Bear is quite sure he doesn’t like visitors. He even has a sign. So when a mouse taps on his door one day, things get a little silly!

Afterward, our friend Owl will stop by to tell us what he has been up to during the quarantine!

Then we will hear one of our favorite stories, Library Lion. Mrs. Merriweather, the head librarian, has very particular rules about the library. What happens when a lion walks into the library??

Pooh Bear Storytime

Winnie The Pooh (and a few friends) are going LIVE on our Facebook to tell us a few of their favorite stories.

Snacks are not required, but as Pooh would say, “it’s time for a little something”, so they are definitely recommended.

Coding to the Moon: Margaret Hamilton and the Apollo Missions

The early scenes of the play are set in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula where Hamilton spent her childhood; the later scenes at MIT’s Instrumentation Lab where Hamilton and her colleagues built and programmed the Apollo Guidance Computer and laid the groundwork for almost all of today’s modern computing. The play is a gripping drama of the daring and risk taking involved in the space missions and how Hamilton’s team averted last minute disasters during the flights of Apollo 8 and Apollo 11. We think that a play about a woman in science can provide positive role models, challenge stereotypes, and give a more inclusive picture of the nature of work in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics for students in grades 4-12.
