Program Description

Program Details


Families with children of all ages are invited to a science storytime with picture books about sound and listening. After the stories, we'll have a soundwalk using "listening instruments" designed by Alex Braidwood, Sound Artist, Director of Graduate Graphic Design Education at Iowa State University and Director of Iowa Lakeside Lab Artist-in-Residence Program.

Everyone will leave with their own paper listening instrument.
