Bedtime Math's Crazy 8s Club at the Winslow Public Library
Join Bedtime Math’s Crazy 8s, where you’ll build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess…it’s a totally new kind of math club. You’ll get to do mischief-making activities like Glow-in-the-Dark Geometry, Bouncy Dice and Toilet Paper Olympics. Aimed at grades K-5.
 
Weekly Sessions:
 
Glow in the Dark Geometry: Make geometric shapes using glowsticks. Lay out the sticks to make mystical repeating patterns, and even build a gleaming Egyptian pyramid. Then flick off the lights to see it all glow!
 
Let’s Get Loud: Build a working flute, then play instruments made of random gadgets. After all that, find out exactly how loud you are, down to the numbers!
 
Time of Your Life: Find out what makes you tick. Race to do crazy stunts, “be” a clock, and see if you have the winning birthday!
 
Toilet Paper Olympics: Bet you never knew sports and toilet paper could go together, huh? Get on a roll with your Olympian skills in the shot put, the long jump, and the relay race.
 
Spy Training: See if you have what it takes to be a spy, and break the codes to the clues to find the hidden treasure!
 
Flying Marshmallows: Send marshmallows flying through the air using popsicle sticks and rubber bands. Figure out what positions work best, then measure the flight to prove it.
 
Zip Line Zoo: Build a zip line for brave stuffed animals, and race them across the room. Measure the distance and time their rides to see how fast they can go!
 
Bouncy Dice Explosion: Your big chance to throw things because you’re supposed to. Find out your chances of rolling a 2 or a 5, then try to be the winning chip on a giant human Bingo board.
