Presenter: KidCreate Woodbury
Let’s create a silly Hatchimal out of air dry clay, pompoms, and more! We’ll sculpt and splatter out Hatchimal eggs until they look just like the real thing- we’ll even create a tiny fuzzy Hatchimal to go inside.
We've partnered with KidCreate Studio to provide you with the materials for this program.
All materials are provided. This is not an in-person event. Supplies will be provided for completion outside of the library. Registrants will receive an email when it's time to pick up their supplies.
We invite you to share your creation on social media.
Registration is required. This project is for ages 6-12.
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Join ArtReach and Stillwater Public Library for a discussion of Lab Girl.
Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds and soil. Lab Girl is her revelatory treatise on plant life—but it is also a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility and passion that drive every scientist. In these pages, Hope takes us back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours in unfettered play in her father’s college laboratory. She tells us how she found a sanctuary in science, learning to perform lab work “with both the heart and the hands.” She introduces us to Bill, her brilliant, eccentric lab manager. And she extends the mantle of scientist to each one of her readers, inviting us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Warm, luminous, compulsively readable, Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains that we can move when love and work come together.
The discussion is offered as part of Big Read in the St. Croix Valley, a one book, one community program that brings together residents from throughout the St. Croix Valley around a common book. For more Big Read events in the valley, go to https://www.artreachstcroix.org/bigread/.
