Family Movie Night: Woodlawn
Date: Friday, February 05, 2016 (Event Views: 940)

Join us for a showing of the movie Woodlawn. Event is free but donations are welcome. Movie is rated PG. http://woodlawnmovie.com/

A gifted high school football player must learn to boldly embrace his talent and his faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field in WOODLAWN, a moving and inspirational new film based on the true story of how love and unity overcame hate and division in early 1970s Birmingham, Ala.
Tony Nathan (newcomer Caleb Castille) lands in a powder keg of anger and violence when he joins fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School after its government-mandated desegregation in 1973. The Woodlawn Colonels football team is a microcosm of the problems at the school and in the city, which erupts in cross burnings and riots, and Coach Tandy Gerelds (Nic Bishop) is at a loss to solve these unprecedented challenges with his disciplinarian ways.
It’s only when Hank (Sean Astin), an outsider who has been radically affected by the message of hope and love he experienced at a Christian revival meeting, convinces Coach Gerelds to let him speak to the team that something truly remarkable begins to happen. More than 40 players, nearly the entire team, black and white, give their lives over to the “better way” Hank tells them is possible through following Jesus, and the change is so profound in them it affects their coach, their school and their community in ways no one could have imagined.

Join GE and Imagine Nation – A Museum Early Learning Center on Tuesday, February 16 for National Engineers Day. At 10am GE and Imagine Nation will unveil the GE Makers Lab – a makerspace dedicated to nurturing young children’s interest in invention, innovation and manufacturing. Plainville, CT-based GE engineers collaborated with the Imagine Nation team to conceptualize and design the GE Makers Lab. Early learners will not only learn about the technology changing the way today’s makers and engineers invent and create, but will be able to make their own prototypes using the tools equipped in the lab. Some of the new technologies to be included are 3D printers and laser cutters. Engineers day will be held from 10am-4pm where more than 20 local GE engineers will lead a variety of hands-on activities that introduce kids to the fun and challenge of engineering, such as making batteries out of lemons, constructing parachutes and testing them in a wind tunnel and designing egg drop structures.

The Explosive Child
Date: Monday, February 22, 2016 (Event Views: 1,232)

The Explosive Child
Topic: Parenting

6:00 PM-8:00 PM

Cost: $12.00

What’s an explosive child? A child who responds to routine problems with extreme frustration-crying, screaming, swearing, kicking, hitting, biting, spitting, destroying property, and worse. A child whose frequent, severe outbursts leave his or her parents feeling frustrated, scared, worried, and desperate for help. Most of these parents have tried everything-reasoning, explaining, punishing, sticker charts, therapy, medication-but to no avail. They can’t figure out why their child acts the way he or she does; they wonder why the strategies that work for other kids don’t work

for theirs; and they don’t know what to do instead. Based on research by Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, this class will help parents understand that explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting. Dr. Greene’s Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that trigger explosive episodes and teaching these kids the skills they lack. This class will provide a new conceptual framework

for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. Classes are partially funded by grants from the Petit Family Foundation, the Bristol Brass General Grant Fund, the Douglas and Noreen Schumann Special Interest Fund, and the Main Street Community Foundation in partnership with the Stocker Foundation. A sliding scale fee & scholarships are available.

Mondays, February 22 and 29, 6 – 8 pm
