Homeschool Science is today at 2pm in the Blocher Room and we're going to be learning all about waves! Waves are all around us - sound and light travel as waves, wind stirs up waves in bodies of water, and (micro)waves can even cook our food! In this experiment we will construct a wave machine using everyday materials (like gumdrops!). We’ll observe how the wave reacts to disturbances and obstacles and pay attention to patterns that form as we operate the machine. (Snacking will be allowed).
Ages 8 - high school can register by calling the library.

Join us tonight at 6pm for Google Search Secrets! This exclusive course will change the way that you use Google, and help you develop your "Research Mindset"!
Discover how to easily use combine key words with different "search operators" to find the needle in the haystack online, and maximize your success with Google Search. By the time this class if over, you will be a research expert, and will understand the search methods that gives you the "keys" to the Internet.
A Note from the Instructor: “My name is Robert (Randy) Ragan, and I have helped thousands of people, from all walks of life, learn how to use Google with their online research by helping them discover how to find exactly what they want off the Internet, and how to find it fast.
Here's story that I tell about doing searches on the Internet: Imagine that you are walking along the beach, and you see some gold coins in the sand... You bend over and pick them up, delighted with your good fortune, and you go on your way. But, what you DON'T know, is that just a few inches beneath the sand, near where you found the coins, is a treasure chest FULL of gold coins. You missed out, and you were oh-so close.
This is like searching on the Internet. So many people will stumble along on the Internet, and not realize that they are passing over what they want, but were so close to getting it.
Sure, they can find things, because Google does a good job…but there is so much more that is being overlooked. They just didn't know how to look. This is a very common problem for many, many people. Is it a problem for you?"
