Family Reading and Science Program

Our annual Family Reading and Science Program will be held on Saturdays, January 21, February 11, and March 10. This year’s theme is Vital Signs: How Health Works. This program is for children in kindergarten through fifth grade, accompanied by an adult. It is provided in partnership with the University of Michigan’s Muesum of Natural History.

You are invited to attend all three workshops, but if you can only attend one or two, you are welcome to attend just the one(s) that fit your schedule.

Registration is required. Please register online here or call the library at 439-1240.

Workshop 1: How YOU work: What are you made of and what do your vital signs mean?
Saturday, January 21: 10:3o – 11:30 A.M.
We will explore what makes you who you are. We’ll look at the building blocks that make our bodies (cells and DNA), figure out what the numbers doctors talk about really tell us, and see how it all works together.

Workshop 2: Germs, parasites, and allergies: Oh, my! What makes us sick and what makes us well?
Saturday, February 11: 10:3o – 11:30 A.M.
We will look at some of the things that make us sick, and find out what our bodies do to protect themselves.

Workshop 3: Build the $6 million you: Making the most of your health
Saturday, March 10: 10:3o – 11:30 A.M.
We will learn what we can do to improve and maintain our health. We’ll examine how our environment, healthy eating, and exercise influence our health and well-being.
