This Summer Reading Program is a multi-media presentation that combines music and science in an exciting and engaging program for elementary and middle school-aged children.  Join B.J. Whitehouse as he explores the many ways sailors used music and simple machines before the advent of powered machinery.  Attendees will be invited to play in an improvised band with pots and pans, join in a tug-of-war, and sing forebitters and sea shanties while they play!   Children 7+ are welcome to attend and no registration is necessary.
