Having been to Israel nine times, Mr. Ocken come to appreciate the richness and complexity of this land—which is holy to Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike—as well as the people who live there. More than a historical treasure, Israel is a vibrant, modern community and home to people of many faiths, worldviews, and backgrounds. Walking its streets and meeting its residents has stirred both my senses and emotions, and through this brief show, I hope you will see and feel a bit of that deep connection all of us have to this important and fascinating region.

On Monday we will be exploring the science of density and water displacement. We will have volunteers construct a boat out of tin foil and see how many pennies it is able to hold before it sinks. On Wednesday, we will celebrate Mole Day by having guacaMOLE and chips. On Thursday, we plan to demonstrate the science of fire by lighting cotton balls on fire under dry ice. The dry ice will cover the flame and produce a soft glow. On these three days, the event will be from 11:00 to 1:00. All
