Second Saturday Science series set at Sequim Library

Second Saturday Science at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., will be offered each second Saturday of the month from December through April.

Each program offers children ages 7-12 fun, hands-on opportunities to explore concepts related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). All materials will be provided.

All classes in the series are free, but pre-registration is required for all sessions due to space constraints.

To register, visit the Sequim Library’s events calendar at www.nols.org, call the library at 360-683-1161 or email to youth@nols.org.

Series schedule:

• Dec. 9, “Elephant toothpaste”

What is matter? What is chemistry and what can we do with it? The Peninsula College STEM Club will present three demonstrations, an interactive arithmetic session balancing the energy of hydrogen to helium and four stations with four different science experiments.

• Jan. 13, “Birds of a Feather”

The Dungeness River Audubon Center offers a program about birds of our neighborhoods and surrounding areas. Adaptations, migratory habits, feathers and nests will be topics of interest.

• Feb. 10, “Optical Illusions”

Students learn the science behind optical illusions and experience the tricks our brains can play on us. Experience and create your own optical illusion with staff from the Imagine Children’s Museum.

• March 10, “Squishy Circuits and Scribble Bots”

Learn how to make a circuit using a battery pack, play dough and LEDs. Construct a motorized “scribble bot” with simple materials and an offset motor. Tinker and explore how a simple contraption can draw complex patterns with educator Christine Spaulding.

• April 14, “Coding With Ozobots”

A simple introduction into coding with an ozobot. Educator Jeff Spaulding will help students use ozobots to learn how to write code — first with markers, then with a laptop screen. See ozobots change speed, flash lights and turn around based on sequences of colored lines.
