For children pre-K and up, and their families

Danielle Marston from the New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance (NECWA) will bring some hands-on activities to help us learn about the giant creatures living under the sea right here in Maine! Use a measuring tape to visualize just how large these creatures are, and wrap your hand in “blubber” and dunk it in ice water to learn about how marine mammals use blubber to keep warm. Danielle will give us a new appreciation for the amazing creatures that share our ocean with us!

Thomas Memorial Library received a grant from HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, producer of the new IMAX film, Blue Whales: Return of the Giants, and the STAR Library Network, in partnership with the California Science Center and SK Films. This program is part of that grant.

Find out more about our Blue Whale project, and the programs and resources made possible by the grant!
