Marshmallow catapults were a huge hit (and such an inexpensive crowd pleaser!). We learned that tiny marshmallows are the best choice for the catapults - they go flying all over the place! And if an extra rubber band was added horizontally, the projectile force increased substantially.

Today we used LUMI inkodye to print on fabric using light and a variety of objects. We made wooden sailboats and then used the fantastic dye to transform our ordinary sails into something extraordinary!!

Today we learned how to solder and made "Maker" pins with flashing eyes. We had a member of the local high school robotics team help everyone get the knack of using a soldering iron.  This was an awesome project and everyone was pretty happy to wear their flashy robot home!

We made a Spin-bot at the Woodbury Library! We took turns adding parts. We also made a rocket glider but it crashed much too early and lost a wing! Luckily we put together smaller non-rocket gliders and made them do all sorts of tricks.

What are you making?  - 
 
We made "squishy circuits" and spent the afternoon making crazy shapes and circuits with homemade dough.

You could use one kit for a group as there are 25 lights and two buzzers but you'd need additional battery packs.  The recipe for the dough (at St. Thomas website) is enough for about 5 kids.

We also cracked open a pretty awesome box from LEGO - it was great to create with while waiting for a turn to solder.

On a recent trip to research my 7th great grandfather, I had the great good fortune to stop into this library. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. They dug out books and reference entries covering my family during the early 1700's. Further, they were able to point me to the cemetery across the street where William Martin was buried in 1715. Nice people. Stop by and say hello for me.

The wifi is available, but it won't reach the whole building, which is two stories and about 6000 sq. ft. I come here often enough, and a good few of the librarians are rather gregarious, and would be even in a space not designed for quiet work. Their boisterousness is like a recrudescent problem. I have object-permanence and am always surprised how chatty they are, but I'd feel ashamed to ask them to be quiet, considering I'd have trouble restraining myself from upbraiding them and starting a tiff if they didn't comply. Furthermore, I'm not here constantly, and they are older librarians who have obviously hardened poor technique (growing up I was inspired by some librarians' ability to communicate softly and quickly), thus I hardly expect any polite request for at least whispering be heeded for long. So here I am with earplugs. Anyways, they have a few decent subscriptions - The Economist, notably. They do the usual display of terrible writing seasoned with good books near the entrance, which is a shame, given poor writing really gives reading a bad name, and the disproportionate dearth of good books is quite drowned out by the loud covers of those raffish writings de rigueur (vampires, cliché American history and Abrahamic religions, anyone?). There is a room in the back that perennially exhibits local artists, and there are other galleries along main street for fine art, too. Pardon the sardonic review, but the librarians have nearly started harmonizing as I've been writing this, which has embittered this critique's flavor. Thursday nights some of the older folks from town hold a 'Road Scholar' discussion, or so I think it's called, but it's eponymous, it's a discussion on travel, with a cadre of socialists chipping in every so often, as they did a few weeks ago, extolling the virtues of 20th century East Asian political movements (famine apparently was not on any of their minds, being the discussions include hors d'oeuvres). I couldn't hold my tongue from caviling with their ineptitude, and I felt such ignominy by my lack of self-restraint, so I haven't returned for another discussion. That was my second one, the first was a week prior and quite a hit in my book (pun intended). Maybe I'll check out this week's discussion, maybe I won't, but one thing is for sure, that I am done venting, this review has served its cathartic purpose, and I am back to my work, earplugs and all.
