Work Smarter Not Harder Show

Julian FranklinSaturday, July 22nd at 2:00 pm join us for the Work Smarter not Harder Show presented by Julian Franklin. This hands-on workshop allows learners to handle wheels, pulleys, levers, wedges, incline planes and screws in a way that makes abstract concepts "concrete" (yes, the pun was intended!).

Julian comes in dressed as a construction worker, but the children from the audience are the ones who do the work.

Tactile learners will come to life as they help figure out how to lift a 50 pound bucket of rocks with a 5 pound weight, and why a wedge is such a handy tool. Using levers your youngest students will be able to easily accomplish feats that NO human being can accomplish bare handed. This is a presentation that will be remembered and talked about for a VERY long time.

Join us for Chicken Big, a special children's costumed musical theater performance based on the picture book by Keith Graves! This is a BIG twist on the classic Chicken Little story...The fun will begin at 2:30pm Wednesday, July 19 in the Children's Area-no tickets are needed. The show is recommended for ages 3-10 years.
