Children’s Program: Nancy Castaldo. Sniffer Dogs: How Dogs (and Their Noses) Save the World
Saturday, October 16, 10:00 am - 11:00 am
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. Nancy Castaldo turns her own fascination with the natural world into science-themed books that inform and engage children, sometimes calling them to action. Her topics range from saving animals from extinction to the biology of their brains, and from how farms feed us to the vital need to save seeds. In Sniffer Dogs, children learn about dogs’ exquisitely sensitive noses, and how their handlers train the animals to find bombs or drugs, save people from rubble, or detect diabetics’ blood sugar levels. Suitable for children 10 and up.
