Ernst Haeckel Diatoms

Friday July 22 | S.T.E.A.M.-Y Ladies Night Out

with artist Cyndi Coon and scientist Catherine Seiler

Did you know that people aren’t the only things that like “selfies?” Inspired by the work of artist Ernst Haeckel, this hands-on workshop includes down-to earth science talk about diatoms and the opportunity to draw your own mini “Cellfies.” It will be like taking a snap shot of your own cells!

Coon is the Chief Experience Officer and President of Laboratory5 Inc. and Seiler is a Program Manager at the Biobank Core Facility at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.

Get outdoors and into water

There are so many ways to play outside – don’t forget about ideas on water.

All outdoor water activities offer a great opportunity to talk with kids about the importance of our water and oceans. Take a look at this infographic from NOAA the National Ocean Service Association.

Sometimes it’s as simple as a dip in a pool or a day at the beach.

Other water activities can require a bit more work such as river canoeing or ocean paddle boarding but it is so worth it to get kids connected with all forms of nature.
