Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Bioshock! Neuroscience for Everyone Health & Fitness- Other,
Nature- Other,
Science
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! This program is suitable for the 2019 summer reading program.

Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Biophere Projects! Growing Food on Mars and Beyond! Life Skills- Food,
Nature- Gardening,
Science
In the late 1980's, scientists began hypothesizing about growing food in space in preparation for the international space station and colonizing other planets. Biospheres were built and humans volunteered to live in them for 1-3 years at a time to mimic missions to other planets. Scientists studied nutrient requirements of plants, interpersonal relationships between participants, and environmental controls within these closed systems to explore scenarios astronauts might face when colonizing new planets. In this program, the library will build and host its own biosphere so students can learn about these closed systems in real time, and conduct experiments as if they were in space.

And in another backyard tale we learn about when to keep or let insects go. Diane's hilarious interpretations of Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat, Old King Lampyradie Beetle keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the world of insects. "From the Academy's point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!"
