Storytime Science for Kids: The Flying Things Episode

Join us for Storytime Science—a storybook read-aloud, followed by a simple activity geared toward young children. This April, the Exploratorium's own Vivian Altmann reads Rosie Revere, Engineer 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 ruler scissors 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.
