March 18, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Do Space and Fontenelle Forest have teamed up to create a new and innovative experience for young tech and nature lovers!
On March 18th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Fontenelle Forest will be at Do Space for another exciting, family-friendly event. The March 18th event will feature several nature-inspired experiences for Do Space participants, including:
NATURAL ARTIFACTS – Experience a variety of natural artifacts first-hand. We’ll have animal pelts, skulls, and more to explore
TREE COOKIE EXPLORATION AND DESIGN – Come learn about the importance of preserving Fontenelle Forest’s oak savannah through the exploration of tree cookies from our forest. Get creative and decorate a tree cookie key chain memento.
EDISON ROBOT CODING – Practice simple coding with Edison Robots. These robots are mini tabletop robots that change speed or direction based on drawn paths you create. Challenge yourself to design a path for your robot resembling a natural land feature or natural object using our templates as a guide. Or get creative and design your own path. The possibilities are endless!
STEM EXPLORING THE AERODYNAMICS OF FLIGHT – Construct paper airplanes based on different birds’ wing structures. Predict which airplane prototype will fly the farthest or fastest. Then, try out your design and see if it wins!
LIVE CRITTER ENCOUNTER – Come see a variety of live reptiles presented by our animal care specialist. Learn interesting facts about their habitats, diets, and life cycles.
Live animals will be on display from 11:00am-2:00pm.
