There are three big events coming to Oneonta this spring, including March Musical Madness, Nano Science Saturday, and Dinosaur Train!
March Musical Madness will be on Saturday, March 5th from 10am to noon, at Anderson Hall, Hartwick College, Oneonta. OWL and Hartwick College Music Department are joining forces to present a hands-on music discovery event. Have you ever wanted to play a violin? Wondered what it would be like to be a soloist in a jazz band? Wanted to build your own instrument? Do this and more at March Musical Madness. This event will also feature several mini-concerts by the various Hartwick College performing ensembles. There is a $5 suggested donation per child. You do not need to sign up ahead of time, just join in the fun!
Nano Science Saturday will probably be our best Science Saturday yet. Put it on your calendars for April 2, noon to 4pm. Young scientists will investigate super-thin materials, forces stronger than gravity and sand that doesn't get wet, even under water! Measure yourself in nanometers, use your nose as a nano detector and much more! Get your Passport to Nano stamped at all the activity stations and take home a Nanoscience Prize Bag! This Science Saturday is brought to you by OWL and The Science Discovery Center. Unlike previous Science Saturdays, there are no separate workshops to sign up for. Instead, participants will visit multiple discovery stations. The location for this event will be in Science Building #1, SUNY Oneonta campus (which also differs from previous Science Saturday events).
Dinosaur Train is presented by OWL, WSKG and the Leatherstocking Railroad Historical Society (LHRS) on April 13th. This will be an activity filled train ride featuring the PBS show Dinosaur Train. Trains will depart from the Milford Depot at 10am and 1pm. The train ride lasts about 1 hour. Tickets are $7.50 per person. All activities are included with your ticket purchase. Childen under 2 ride for free. Make your reservation directly through the LHRS by calling 432-2429.
Teachers! This will be a great field trip opportunity, appropriate for grades pre-k through 1st.
