Welcome back, Wild Things!
We’re well into the new year, and Nick and I have been busy bees with Animal School.
First off, note that we have officially been operating as our own independent business, ROC Animal School, since January.
Second, to reflect that change, we have new fliers, complete with our new logo! Check it out, and share with anyone who may be interested in our programs. 2018 ROC Animal School Flier
We also have some fun events coming up, including our Vulpinology program (i.e. life as a fox) at the East Rochester Public Library at 11 a.m. on February 21, the second annual ROC March for Science Expo on April 14 at the Riverside Hotel from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and a bunch of Easter Bunny gigs coming up! We do still have dates available if you are interested in having the Easter Bunny at your event, so contact Nick soon to make sure you get a spot.
As an added bonus, you can get a sneak peek at one of the things we’ll be handing out at the science expo: fun experiments to do with your pets. These are simple and safe experiments kids can do to help pique their interest in science and scientific inquiry. Fun Experiments to Do with Your Pets
Additionally, I will be making a vlog that gives my perspective about science and STEM education, including my thoughts and insight into why many girls lose interest in science by the time they reach secondary school.
Lastly, for fun, free, hands-on activities, I have uploaded copies of our fox mask and kestrel head coloring pages for you to print out and share with any kids or adults who love to color.
That’s everything I have cooking for now. Nick has been working on his coywolf presentation, which has been a big talking point with many people, lately.
Until next time: keep your wild side roarin’!
