Our Kickstarter project, Teaching Children Science through Dance, was fully funded on Presidents’ Day–and we exceeded our goal by 13%! Now we’re preparing to launch the new program at Kid*Vention Saturday, February 21. We’d love to see you there.
Please stop by our booth at Kid*Vention 10 AM – 3 PM at Key Recreation Center, and learn about migrating animals through art and dance. The event is free, or with a suggested donation of $5. Kid*Vention is a celebration of science for children, with many hands-on activities offered by a variety of organizations. Even if you don’t have children to bring, we welcome our adult supporters and the chance to show you about our programs. So drop on by!

We have until midnight, February 16th, to receive $2000 in pledges to research, design, and get materials for our new natural history program, Teaching Science through Dance. We’re scheduled to share the program with families at the Virginia Discovery Museum’s Kid*Vention science celebration Saturday, February 21, and then again for Earth Day 2015 on the Downtown Mall. At Kid*Vention we’re running Migration Station, where children will learn about North American animals and their migrations, draw medallions of their favorite animal, and then learn animal dances. The dances will teach about animal locomotion and attributes.
