What’s happening in STEM?
Poke Your Head Into Puget Sound! Join scuba diver Christine Longdon with Grinnin Fish to learn about the gear needed to dive in the chilly waters of Puget Sound. Explore the beauty down below through a slide presentation and learn about some of the cool critters that call Puget Sound home. Check out sea shells, sharks teeth, photos, books, and puzzles. Take a picture with some fun critters and try on dive gear while building science knowledge through hands on experiments. Grinnin Fish is located in Stanwood, Washington, and is dedicated to making science exciting through real hands on learning and exploration. Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. No registration. For all ages.
Defeat the summer math slump!
Join us for a Zeno Family Math Game Meet-Up! This free event brings families together for math games, puzzles, and other activities that support elementary school math concepts through the simple act of playing.
Includes a family education table – learn and take away games and resources that can be used right away with young learners to support fact fluency, mental math, and problem solving.
For ages 4-11. Caregiver required.
Seasoned astronomer and former NASA consultant Kevin Manning will demonstrate how scientists measure great distances in space, how objects in space move and interact, and will discuss what is required to live in the airless world of outer space. After this informative presentation, Kevin will have telescopes with specialized filters with which participants can view sunspots. For all ages. Supported by Friends of the Sultan Library.
The Solar Eclipse will reach maximum visibility at 10:20 am. Arrive anytime between 10 am and 10:30 am to view this once-in-a-century eclipse (weather permitting and glasses provided). Then at 10:30 am the Museum of Flight is hosting their “Suited for Space” program in the library! Work in small groups to design and build “space suits” from household materials to protect a marshmallow astronaut to discover what happens to the human body in space. Participants will test their designs in the vacuum chamber and evaluate their success. Supplies are provided. Registration is required. Registering for this session saves your place for both the eclipse viewing and 10:30am Suited for Space program.
