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
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.
