Nature and Science at Wonder Works
Collecting Nature
Friday, July 5 10am to Noon
Saturday, July 6, 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Children and their adults can learn about the natural world when they collect rocks, fossils, shells, bones, seeds, cones or or other objects produced by nature. At our Collecting Nature program, you can view, touch, sort, classify, learn about, and play with our nature collections from around the world. You can also jump start your own nature collection: Sift through the sandbox to find rocks and shells you can either keep or trade at the Nature Collector's Swap Shop.

Transportation Works
Friday, July 12, 10am to Noon
Saturday, July 13, 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Today we'll have planes, automobiles, and more at Wonder Works! Let gravity do the work as you race toy cars down ramps. Then let spinning wheels propel toy cars into loop-de-loops around a battery powered raceway. There will also be an O-scale model railway where you can take your turn as engineer. The play dough table will be set up as a construction site, with diggers, dump trucks, and plastic construction workers. You'll find more construction vehicles in our pebble filled pool and in the art room sandbox.

What's Inside?
Friday, July 26, 10am to Noon
Saturday, July 27, 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Today we will use our senses of touch, hearing, and sight to discover what's inside a variety of natural and human made objects. Reach inside a box and let your sense of touch tell you what it holds. Shake a container to see if you can tell what's inside just by listening. You can look at X-rays of skeletons and try to put pretend organs back inside a plastic body. There also will be magic tricks that you can figure out once you look below the surface.
