Teen Science Cafés at the North Carolina Museum of Forestry
April 21: Bats: Bountiful, Beneficial, Beautiful, but Burdened. Lisa Gatens, Curator of Mammals at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences will join us to talk about how bats are often misunderstood and underappreciated, and how these creatures are facing threats to their very existence. Because bats fly and are active primarily at night, studying them can be very tricky; Ms. Gatens will introduce us to the tools used in the study of these nocturnal mammals, as well as teach us how to identify the different echolocation calls bats use to maneuver and survive within their environments.
What is the Teen Science Café? The Teen Science Café brings teens together in an informal setting to learn about science and technology. Each café will include a real scientist to speak on chosen topics, an interactive activity relating to the discussion, snacks, and time to meet other teens that enjoy science. This nationwide program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. The North Carolina network partners include the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Morehead Planetarium and the North Carolina Museum of Forestry. Examples of topics that have been covered at established Cafés include the gritty reality of crime scene investigations and exploration of the impact of alcohol on the prenatal brain. The possibilities are endless, and the program is FREE! Space is limited, so please call the museum at 910.914.4185 to reserve a spot. Parent must bring teen to the classroom to sign in. Teens must be picked up before the Museum closes at 7pm.
On exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Forestry through August 4, 2013
Flashback: Community Life Through the Lens of Mack Munn, 1940-1960
Winner of the 2012 National Council on Public History Graduate Student Project Award
This exhibition celebrates the life of African American photographer Mack Munn. Munn was born in the Columbus County town of Sandyfield, North Carolina in 1888 to former slaves Mary Munn and Daniel Grainge. The family, which included siblings Gary, Winslow, William and Katie, along with Mack eventually moved to East Arcadia, North Carolina.
Family and community members are unsure how Munn came to be trained or even own cameras. Nevertheless, they were essential to his daily routine. Munn's photographs of the East Arcadia area provide glimpses of the staged and informal lives of its residents. His subjects are strong and proud whether participating in a baptism or showing off a new car. His images preserved decades in the life of a community reveling in its past, present and future opportunities.
This exhibit was developed by the University of North Carolina Wilmington Public History Graduate Gallery and Lower Bladen-Columbus Historical Society
