“A Wrinkle in Time” Extravaganza!
March 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Mark your calendars! Saturday March 17th from 10am to 12pm is our “A Wrinkle in Time” Extravaganza with science, technology and art activities for the whole family.
Ever wanted to build a nebula in a jar? Well, now you can. How about construct 5th dimensional objects? We’ve got that too! Want to change the color of your skin for an intergalactic dance party? Artist Erica Qualey will be on hand for some space-age body-marbling. And that’s just the beginning! Step through our very own tesseract, and we will transport you to another planet where the wonders of the galaxy await! All interstellar exploits are designed to be drop-in, completely free, and open to the public. Then, come view the National Geographic film “A Journey to the Edge of the Universe” shown from 12pm to 1pm in the Porter Hall.
But wait! There’s more! Skidompha has chartered a shuttle mission to bring students to the matinee showing of “A Wrinkle in Time” at the Thomaston Cinema, and safely back to Earth again. Students under 11 must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets for transportation and the film are $10. Please register at the library by March 15th. Students should be prepared for take-off at Porter Meeting Hall by 12pm, Saturday, March 17th.
