|Bioshock! Neuroscience for Everyone||
Health & Fitness- Other,
This course is taught with a lecture and lab component. During lecture, students learn about the organization of the nervous system, synaptic transmission, neurotransmitters, and ionic basis for action potentials. These are basic foundations for the science of neurophysiology, which we will be practicing using hands on methods. The lab component involves recording action potentials in real time from an insect, and analysis of the recording to interpret results. Robotic control of an insect using neural circuits and a cell phone usually interest the most hard core bored students! The goal of the class is to interest students in neural circuits and neuroscience! Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. This program is suitable for the 2019 summer reading program.
|Sustainable Spring Seed Starting||
Life Skills- Food,
First, we make planting pots out of recycled newspaper, or soil blocks with a press. Then, participants fill their pots with soil and pick from a variety of organic seeds to plant. Last, we make labels so we remember what we are growing! Unlimited transplants can be planted to be taken home or plan a library garden for this program, and it is a great way to get kids excited about summer gardening! Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. Suitable for 2019 summer reading.
|Silk! Growing and Spinning||
Learn how to grow silk worms in a sustainable manner, and to spin real silk cocoons into thread. The cultural heritage of silk, the trade routes, and unique properties of the fabric will be discussed. Products made from silk will be covered, as well as host plant propogation and larval care practices. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. Suitable for the 2019 summer reading program.
