Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium

We're taking a close look at cycles of change this month. Transition is 
as much a part of the air as the sound of migrating geese and the smell 
of apple pie, and it's what we're exploring. We're always interested in 
hearing from you about the changes you've observed that signal a new 
season. Let us know how you track change when you visit us at the Museum.

Just in time for the gift-giving season ... Amanda Weisenfeld introduces 
us to her world of gnomes,  ravens, red foxes and the spiritual feeling 
of the natural world.  A founding member of the Northeast Kingdom 
Artisans Guild in St. Johnsbury, where her colorful, playful felt 
creations can be found, she has been felting for the past 17 years. Let 
your holiday traditions begin by creating an adorable felted creature.

*Climate Change*
ccbackpack *Backpack Training*

Saturday, November 8
9:00AM - 3:30PM
The question of climate change might not be simple to answer, but the 
Climate Change Backpack is a teaching tool being offered by the 
Northeast Science Center Collaborative with the aim of making it easy 
for teachers on the go to educate kids about climate change anywhere it 
suits their needs... The backpack contains things like historical 
graphs, lab experiments, a play about climate change that kids can put 
on in school, an imitation ice core, and a compact fluorescent light 
bulb, just to name a few. So far it's not just teachers across the 
Northeast that are using this tool, it's also in use in over 120 
National Parks in the United States.
