Finding North

Friday, February 3, 2023, at 10:00 AM

Grades: 5th and up | Length: 60 minutes

Finding North brings to life the powerful stories of the strivings, sacrifices and dreams of John P. Parker, a former enslaved man who dedicated his life to helping enslaved people escape through the Underground Railroad in southern Ohio. Drawn from historical research, Parker’s tale is woven together with verbatim interview material and oral histories from contemporary community members who tell their stories of searching for haven.





Doktor Kaboom and The Wheel of Science!

Friday, April 14, 2023, at 10:00 AM

Grades: 3rd to 8th | Length: 60 minutes

Doktor Kaboom is having trouble picking his favorite science demonstrations, so he’s bringing them all! Doktor Kaboom has built a great big spinning wheel and labeled it with everything from optical illusions to chemical reactions to a homemade hovercraft, and more! At least a dozen fantastic demonstrations ready to go. Wherever the wheel stops, that’s what’s next!





It’s Okay to Be Different—
