Online Event: Join via Facebook or YouTube. Each month, the staff plan a story and complementary activities that can be done at home. Visit the Exploratorium site for information and the supplies needed for the at home activity.

This Month: The Flying Things Episode
The Exploratorium’s own Vivian Altmann reads Rosie Revere, Engineer (Amazon.com) by Andrea Beaty, illustrated by David Roberts.

Second-grader Rosie designs and builds the most wonderful things. But when she loses confidence, her great-great aunt Rose helps her see how brave and creative she truly is.

After the story, stick around for three fun activities: build a rotocopter, a spinning blimp, and a ring glider!

You’ll need:
the Rotocopter pattern printout
pencil or marker
paper clips
Scotch tape
three kinds of paper: cardstock, construction paper, and printer paper*
*All three flying things can also be made with regular paper.
