Wondergy Science Wonder + Energy = Learning for Fun Wondergy is a team of scientists who love to play. Everything is unscripted and driven by audience participation. You might even call it science improvisation. But be careful what you wish for, because Wondergy’s scientists may set themselves ablaze, blow stuff up, or send athletes flying over your audience at your request! From world-champion Skateboarders to Laser Shows or Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream, Wondergy brings awesome stuff, and explores the science that makes it work Family-friendly and adaptable, Wondergy events are great for kids, teens, and adults. Wondergy programs typically run between 60 and 90 minutes, and are great for special occasions, pre-school & school programs, summer camps, collegiate events, corporate functions, meetings and keynotes, and more! Wondergy can work with you to create custom programming adapted to your community, your curriculum, your market, and your goals!

Laura Ingalls Day is a compilation of programs normally taught in a 1 hour block, designed for a kickoff or finale to summer reading, or an event that will bring in patrons during the winter. Starting with sugaring off, we will make sugar on snow, then move onto fresh butter, cheese, and sourdough bread. Next we will plant a garden on the library grounds or start transplants for growing on the windowsill. We can wash up with home made old fashioned lye soap, and hand dip candles. Wrap it all up by meeting farm animals and learning to care for them just like Laura and Mary. Based on book: Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this program can incorporate reading the book and eating between stations. The program can last 4-8 hours, depending on age group and individual or combinations of stations. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. Great for the 2019 summer reading program.
