Early Release Day - Animal Embassy: Halloween Creatures and Critters (All Ages)

Early Release Day – Animal Embassy: Halloween Creatures and Critters (All Ages)

Wednesday, October 22

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Head to the Blackstone Library on your early release day for a presentation with our friends at the Animal Embassy. During this workshop participants will be introduced to a variety of creepy and crawly critters that may cause you to double take BUT the Embassy will prove you wrong by discussing why these animals cause fear and how we can change our preconceived notions about them by simply learning more. Through observation and discussion we will be able to see that the creatures we fear most are actually pretty amazing and that the characteristics that may cause you to cringe actually help them and their fellow creatures to survive! Sure to be interesting and exciting all while taking the scare out of those Halloween creatures.

Registration for this program is not required – just come on your half day to enjoy!

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Tweens and teens did you enjoy our hands-on learning labs throughout the summer? Want to check them out? Well, we are going to try to keep them up and running by merging them with our teen advisory board meetings throughout the school year. During each meeting we will focus on a new piece of technological equipment, see how it works and what we can create! Once we have all of these new pieces of equipment under our belts we will then find creative ways to share them with others and create programming for new and upcoming that tweens and teens will enjoy! And, as always – snacks will be provided.

Registration for this program is required so that we know how many participants to expect! To do so please click here or call 203. 488. 1441. ext. 323.
