Happier Hour with Chris Ferrie

Join us in welcoming special guest Chris Ferrie for happier hour storytime on Thursday, March 5th!

Children's story time + happy hour = Happier Hour. 1/2 off drinks from 4-5. Stories at 4:30. Make everyone happier!

Chris Ferrie is a physicist, mathematician, and father of four budding young scientists. He believes it is never too early to introduce small children to big ideas. Chris is also a senior lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney and Centre for Quantum Software and Information. For more information, visit https://csferrie.com/.

When it comes to baby books, farm animals and construction equipment abound. But where are the board books about science and math? In a world where toddlers operate smart-phones and computers before they learn to walk, is it really too soon to teach them Newton’s three laws of motion or Einstein’s theory of general relativity? Physicist and mathematician, Chris Ferrie, knows that teaching children science and technology
concepts early is crucial. “We teach our children lengthy worlds like hippopotamus- why not teach them to say proton, neutron, or electron too?” says Ferrie. Introducing babies to math and science promotes literacy in these subjects later in life when they encounter them in school.  Ferrie’s mission to treat babies like the geniuses they are led him to create Baby University, a board book series that introduces young readers to complex
ideas like physics and math using simple explanations and colorful illustrations. It only takes a small spark to ignite a child's mind! Written by an expert, Rocket Science for Babies is a colorfully simple introduction to aerospace engineering. Babies (and grownups!) will learn about the basics of hot lift and thrust that make things fly. With a tongue-in-cheek approach that adults will love, this installment of the Baby University board book series is the perfect way to introduce basic concepts to even the youngest scientists. After all, it's never too early to become a rocket scientist!
