Message From The Director
The value of reading to your children
What are you reading? I was asked this question recently during a party and responded, “Last night, I read The Big Red Barn and the night before, it was Corduroy.” Other than newspapers and the occasional magazine article, I only read board books. Since my son, Bennett, was born 11 months ago, I can’t remember the last book intended for grownups that I actually finished, unless you count Goodnight Nanny-Cam, a parody of Goodnight Moon.
The Mad Hatter Egg Hunt
Saturday, March 28th @ 10:30am - 12:30pm
Help CMEE celebrate the arrival of spring at our annual Mad Hatter Egg Hunt! Sponsored by Dan’s Papers, 2015’s celebration promises to be bigger, better, and—dare way say it?—madder than ever before. After designing and decorating their own hats and bags, children will participate in a scavenger hunt for “Eco” Eggs containing healthy treats and other goodies inside and around the museum.
Ages: Families with children of all ages
Cost: Free for members, $10 for non-members
The Science of CMEE Mini Golf
A first grader from Speonk Elementary School, Zach, recently used CMEE Mini Golf as the basis for his science fair project. Using our Loop-de-loop hole as a model, he attempted to prove the hypothesis, "The greater the speed of the ball the higher the likelihood that the ball will make it around the loop." After testing his theory using a Hot Wheels track and loop, he concluded that his initial thoughts were correct, which is another way of saying "that minimum velocity equals the square root of gravity times the loop’s radius."
Great work, Zach!
