It’s full STEAM ahead with Dr. Loboto’s STEAM Lab and Movie Magic Show. We’ll explore the science, technology, engineering, art, and math behind movies and animation while trying to thwart the mad scientist Dr. Loboto and his plan to take over the world.
Kids at home will make balloon rockets and early animation devices called Thaumatropes. Older kids will create phenakistoscopes, another type of animation device. And, with some parental supervision, we’ll attempt to make s’mores in our very own solar ovens.
Our author is Teresa Robeson, this year’s winner of the Asian Pacific American Award for her picture book “Queen of Physics”. And our guest performer is magician, singer, recycling guru, and PBS star, the one and only, Steve Trash.
