Virtual Event | United States


Join us for Storytime Science-a storybook read-aloud, followed by a simple activity geared toward young children. This January, the Exploratorium’s own Vivian Altmann reads Oscar and the Bat: A Book About Sound, written and illustrated by Geoff Waring.

What’s that sound? Oscar can hear it, but who’s making it? Bat shows up to take Oscar on a sound tour of the garden and beyond.

Check out a few quick sound demonstrations with Vivian, then try a sound hunt at home and learn how to make a buzzing bee toy.

For the at-home sound hunt, you’ll need a balloon.

For the buzzing bee toy, you’ll need:
a popsicle stick
an index card
two cap erasers (the kind you stick on the end of a pencil)
a rubber band (about ¼-inch thick)
a piece of string
a strong stapler
markers for decoration (optional)

Then stick around for a noisy poem!
