Dr. King understood the importance of science. In 1963 he published a series of sermons titled Strength to Love. In the first sermon of the compilation, “A Tough Mind and a Tender Heart,” Dr. King noted that, “Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power…” Four years later he spoke at the American Psychological Association’s Annual Convention in Washington, D.C. and in a powerful speech, challenged the nation’s social scientists to use facts to combat systemic racism. WonderLab honors the work of Dr. King and all that have continued this work throughout the year. WonderLab strives to provide an enriching safe space and is founded on values of inclusion and access so that everyone may experience the wonder of science and the power that comes from exploration and knowledge. On the day dedicated to Dr. King, WonderLab will be offering virtual programming that honors his legacy. Join WonderLab educators and Monroe County Public Library Librarians for story reading and science activities. Science Story Time allows young scientists to develop literacy and STEM skills as well as build vocabulary by actively participating in the program. Activities designed for ages 3-6. All welcome.
