Science Week Comes to the Dover Public Library!
Join us during April School Vacation Week, April 20 – 27, for fun-filled science activities and demonstrations.
What’s Up in Tonight’s Sky
The NH Astronomical Society will be offering a presentation What’s Up in Tonight’s Sky at the Dover Public Library on Monday, April 22 @ 6:30pm. This presentation is for the budding astronomer with information on basic astronomy and photography by club members. Weather permitting a Skywatch will be held outside the Library after the presentation. The NH Astronomical Society is the sponsor of the Library’s telescope, which is available for borrowing to cardholders in good standing. The Society’s goals are to help foster scientific literacy, stimulate an interest in astronomy, and provide people who have never looked through a telescope the chance to experience the excitement that comes from discovery. See if you can see What’s Up in Tonight’s Sky!
Can You Fly a Paper Airplane in the Library?
If you sign up for The Science of Flight workshop you can! Join us for the The Science of Flight on Tuesday, April 23 @ 10:30am. Miss Karin will conduct a special craft workshop on making paper airplanes. After making your plane, test your plane’s aerodynamics and make it fly around the Children’s Room! Space is limited (for ages 7 & up). Call the Children’s Room @ 516-6052
Dinosaurs Roam the Library
Thanks to the Friends of the Library and the NH Space Grant Consortium, the Library is pleased to welcome the Discovery Dome to our Lecture Hall on Thursday, April 25. The Discovery Dome is a portable full-dome that offers a state-of-the-art visual learning experience. Join us to watch The Dinosaur Prophecy in full surround. Long before dinosaurs' massive extinction 65 million years ago, many individual species simply disappeared. Visit dinosaur graveyards, study their bones, and reconstruct how these creatures lived and died to solve four famous cold cases from the age of the dinosaurs in The Dinosaur Prophecy. We will have 3 showings at 9:30am, 10:30am, and 11:30am. Attendees will be treated to an immersive & realistic experience! Call the Library at 516-6052 to reserve space in one of our 3 showings.
Watch Out For the Robot!
On Saturday, April 27th @ 11am the LunaCats, the UNH lunar robotics team, will be demonstrating their robot in the Lecture Hall of the Library. The LunaCats design and build robotic excavators intended to mine lunar soil for a NASA competition. They are very enthusiastic about sharing their robot, and their experiences, with the Dover Community. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the robot in action and ask question of the design team!
