U of M Museum of Natural History 2013 Family Reading & Science Workshops (at Howell Library)

Workshop 2 / February 16

Just Like Me? Exploring culture, biology and diversity For ages 6-11 and parent(s) At the Howell Carnegie District Library (Pre-registration required, call 517.546.0720 x107) All of us seem so different from the outside, but is that really true? In a series of 3 hands-on family workshops we will explore how biology, anthropology and physics all play a part in race and culture. Workshop 2: Everybody cooks. Saturday, February 16, 2013 10:30-11:30 am Every country has a cuisine but why do the same ingredients or types of food pop up all over the place? Families will learn how geology relates to food, what cultural transmission is and they will also get to make their very own bread starter. Other upcoming workshops in this series: Workshop 3: Can you feel the beat? Saturday, March 16, 2013 10:30-11:30 am They say music is the universal language, but why? Families will learn what makes some instruments more common than others and why some sounds creep us out or get us excited. We will explore how cultural transmission influences music and families will get to make their own instruments. For ages 6-11 and parent(s) At the Howell Carnegie District Library (Pre-registration required, call 517.546.0720 x107)
