Tangling With Twisters

Born to Do Science is starting up again for the Spring semester! Our first program is "Tangling With Twisters" with Dr. Caleb Lack.

Why do some children recover from a natural disaster in good shape while others suffer ongoing anxiety? Clinical psychologist Dr. Caleb Lack from the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond will present his research connecting emotional resilience with explanatory style.

We'll meet on Saturday January 15, 10:00 AM at the Stillwater Public Library, room 119.

I spoke with Dr. Lack last night about his research and he'll have some pretty surprising findings to share. He works with kids the same age as our audience, so we'll get to find out what it's like to be a subject in a scientific study!

Kids in 3rd - 6th grade and parents are invited to attend. See you then!!

P.S. Here's a poster; feel free to download, print, and post this anywhere in Stillwater you think kids might see it! (Click to load in the hi-res version, then drag that to your desktop.)
