The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, 701 Main St., will offer a fun opportunity for children to learn about nanotechnology through an interactive Puppet Workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday.
The crucial building blocks of nanoscience, the manipulation of matter on the molecular scale, will be presented through the highly entertaining guise of puppetry. Children can learn nanoscience though interaction with puppetry and apply this new knowledge to building their own shadow puppet. Children are also encouraged to explore the makings of basic circuitry, discover the foundation of cartoon animation, or dabble in aerodynamics in the working wind tunnel during the Tinkering Workshop.
This event is free and open to the public. The Puppet Workshop is developed with support from the NISE Network, using funding from the National Science Foundation under Award Number 0940143.

The center is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 1-4 p.m. Saturday, and is closed on Sunday. Support for ASC is provided in part by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Hands-on science exhibits are offered through the center’s partnership with Arkansas Discovery Network, a consortium of seven museums in Arkansas funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
