Field Guide: Watermania! Are you Hydrophilic or Hydrophobic?
Saturday, July 22 • 11AM – 1PM • Pre-Registration Required • 20 Participants • All Ages Welcome • Free!
Join us to discover the weird, wild, world of water manipulation. Plant, animal and insect species use water to survive. The microscopic world of the Tardigrade expels water from its body and exists for decades dried out only to reanimate with a drop of water. Mosses pop back to life with the rains. The Chia seed and tomato seed are hydrophilic absorbing water to expand many times their original size. Some beetles can capture droplets of fog to drink and the Pitcher plant collects water to catch prey.
Come on the journey with artist and Director of Education Doug Paulson and founder of nature-centric iDig2Learn, Christina Delfico for a glimpse of the wonders of water, its structure and learn about master manipulators in nature at Socrates Sculpture Park.
