Women in Science: An Environmental Super Heroine – Rachel Carson

$45

with Laurie Witzkowski

Calendar Mar 7, 2023 at 4 pm

When American marine biologist Rachel Carson published her book Silent Spring, she didn’t just call attention to the dangers of careless use of pesticides that leak into our waters, but she also helped launch the modern environmental movement! Work with CDs, a plastic that cannot be recycled, and turn them into spring birds from the red breasted robin, Blue Jays and others. Then hang your bird CDs in your bedroom window and watch them come alive as the sunlight dances across your room.

Jane Goodall, a British primatologist, is considered the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees.

Goodall is a dedicated advocate and activist on behalf of animal welfare and conservation causes. Learn about chimpanzees as you create a tropical forest diorama from the forest floor to the canopy above. Then add your own chimpanzee family crafted from self-hardening clay and paint pens.
