‘Second Saturday Science’ kicks off at Port Angeles, Sequim libraries

The North Olympic Library System’s Second Saturday Science program will kick off this Saturday with sessions in brick animation in Sequim and Port Angeles.

All classes in the series are free. Preregistration is required due to limited space.

To register, visit the Sequim Library events calendar at www.nols.org, call the library at 360-683-1161 or send an email to [email protected].

Brick animation taught by the Clay Animation Network of Seattle will be offered in two sessions Saturday. The first session will be from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., followed by a second session from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

Students will use iPads to create an animated Lego story from still images using concepts of set, character and story construction to create the film, the library said. All materials will be provided.

Second Saturday Science at the Sequim Library will now be offered every second Saturday of the month through May 2017.

Each program will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and offer children ages 7 to 12 hands-on opportunities to explore concepts related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

On Dec. 10, tiny Ozobot robots will be on the loose at the Sequim Library. Participants will learn how to program the Ozobot robots during this Hour of Code event.

The Hour of Code is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. Ozobot kits have been provided by the Washington State Library.

Second Saturday Science will kick off the new year with Brad Griffith’s craft stick creations Jan. 14.

According to Griffith, “the first rule in craft stick bending is that there are no rules. Your goal is to be as adventurous and creative as possible. Stretch your imagination to make creative, fun crafts.”

Attendees will go home with a Flintstones-inspired car constructed at this session.
