Girls in Science Invite Your Budding Scientist to Attend Green Workshop

Girls ages 11 through 14 will work through environmental concepts as they participate in various hands-on activities with Science Museum educators.

Published

on

What:
Middle school-age girls whose motto is reduce, reuse, recycle will love this fall’s Girls in Science event at the Science Museum of Virginia.

From what we eat to what we wear, girls will explore how daily decisions can contribute to extreme heat and weather events. Interactive activities will allow participants to leverage design, engineering and natural landscapes to make communities resilient and explore renewable energy sources with a solar cell phone charger and fuel cell car.

The event also includes an extreme weather presentation on the Science Museum’s six-foot-diameter suspended Science on a Sphere® and a take-home activity to continue each girl’s connection to environmental science.

When:
The Science Museum is offering three hour-long workshops on Saturday, Nov. 13, starting at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Attendees are invited to explore the Science Museum before or after their workshop. (Note: girls selecting the 4 p.m. workshop will need to explore the Science Museum before the workshop.) The Science Museum is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Who:
Girls ages 11 through 14 will work through environmental concepts as they participate in various hands-on activities with Science Museum educators.

Why:
Not only will attendees leave full of inspiration, but they will also have actionable steps for becoming more resilient today. This will position them to make positive change in their community and see themselves in the STEM field as a future career.

How:
Thanks to the generous support from DuPont, Girls in Science tickets are only $10 per person. Pre-registration is required on the Science Museum’s website, including for chaperones. Chaperones can bring up to 10 girls to the event. Each workshop can accommodate 30 total guests.

Where:
Science Museum of Virginia, 2500 W. Broad St., Richmond, VA 23220

All the Saints Halloween Parade is Back

After a break for something truly scary, the annual Oregon Hill tradition is back.

Published

on

This year the theme is “World on Fire Halloween Parade: A Funeral March for Billionaires and Beyond!”

The parade will start at 7 PM on October 31st, at Laurel and Main streets across from the Altria Theater and will work its way through the Oregon Hill neighborhood.

Though this event is free to the public (as it has been for 16 years!) it takes lots of hard work and money to make this beloved Richmond event happen! Please consider donating to help create a sustainable parade and help pay the artists and puppeteers for all the time and energy they put into manifesting this event. You can make a donation here.

World-famous Bread and Puppet (those of the giant puppets) will be joining in the parade. Mars/hades puppet with rocket ships and billionaires, vultures, hawks, snake dragons (so many massive puppets), stilts, flags, Music, and the Richmond magic with all the Saints flair.

Tour de Fall Line Donation Based this Year

The RVAMore website isn’t up to date with the new race information yet but I’m sure will be available soon.

Published

on

RVA More’s Tour de Fall Line is back but a little different this year. All proceeds directly benefit rvaMORE to help enhance your outdoor experience on our local trails.

The entry fee is WAIVED.

Our only request is that you stop by the rvaMORE tent, say hello and drop 20 bucks into the trail fund wheelbarrow.

This event has been our premier fundraiser for a number of years; but without the aid stations, food, music, and beverages, we
elected to go with optional donations rather than an entry fee.

What to expect: You can choose to ride whatever distance you want and start at any point along the route. As always, GPS maps will be available for download.

The full course will be marked by volunteers. There will be no aid stations.

This is a ride of fun and self-sufficiency – the DNA of MTB riding.

Bring your friends or enjoy a solo soul ride for the day.

We’ll be hanging out all day.

We sincerely hope you can join us for a day of celebrating our city trail system!
