STEM Saturdays presented by National Grid

  Something prehistoric is headed this way! Penn Dixie Fossil Park will be in the Tinkering Tank from 10-1 working on Trilobite Masks. Trilobites were ancient sea creatures that roamed Western New York 350 million years ago. In art we will be creating and decorating our own dinosaurs.   Then for the virtual portion, I'll read a dinosaur book!
