Sequim Library to host Junior Science Explorers experience

The Sequim branch of the North Olympic Library System hosts Junior Science Explorers, starting at noon on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 630 N. Sequim Ave.

Designed for children ages 4-6 and their caregivers, Junior Science Explorers introduces children to the lives of local forest animals.

“Nurture your child’s natural sense of adventure and curiosity, encourage your child to be a persistent problem solver, and introduce your child to basic elements of scientific reasoning with preschool and primary science activities,” program organizers say.

Activity stations include:

• Match the real life fur, claws, and horns to the animal

• Make and fly birds in a wind tunnel

• Guess the animal scenario from the real life clues

• See how salmon swim with a stream table

• Create rain and watersheds with an AR Sandbox

• Make animal tracks

• Search and find the camouflaged animals

• Decorate a tree round pendant to take home

This program is supported by the Friends of Sequim Library.

For more information and to register, call the Sequim Library at 360-683-1161, email to youth@nols.org or visit www.nols.org.
