Always a favorite of our Summer Reading Program, this year the University of Oregon’s Museum of Natural and Cultural History is providing a virtual program and special activity packs for all three Summer Reading sites. The “Engineer It” program and activity packs explores science and engineering techniques of ancient peoples.
For thousands of years, Native Americans have used science and engineering to create tools, homes, clothing, and more—passing this knowledge down through generations. In fact, many technologies that were invented long ago are still being used today. Through this unique virtual program, families can join us to explore artifacts designed by Oregon’s first engineers, visit with an archaeologist, and try out their own engineering skills! This program will include both a video component and an activity bag full of crafts and activities for you to take home!
Due to restrictions related to the Coronavirus epidemic, this performance will be online. You can watch from the comfort of your own home or come to our regular meeting at 10:00 AM in Paisley or 2 PM in Christmas Valley, Tuesday, August 4th; or at 10:00 AM or 2:00 PM on Thursday, August 6th, 2020 in the Lakeview Main Library Meeting Room to obtain a copy of the video. Seating is limited for in-person programs, so call your local library to make a reservation. If watching from home, be sure to get your activity pack and access code at the library.
