The Questions can be posed by the audience members directly (with Library Admin unmuting) or through the Library Admin after receiving text questions.|
Bubble Magic is Tom Noddy's original presentation of surprising (and gorgeous) structures made from soap bubbles. This is not just big (messy and beautiful) bubbles waved out into the air but careful constructions, some filled with fog that has been featured in physics and mathematics conferences, university classes as well as kindergarten classes. The answers to the questions will take into account the age group involved. Tom knows a good bit of the science involved but began and is still primarily an entertainer, not an academic. It's a show ... the audience will get the idea that ... it was science and I had fun.

These classes have a relationship-base curriculum that create opportunities for kids and parents interact, connect and communicate with each other, strengthening the boding between them. They will exercise their bodies, activate their imagination and express themselves in a fun and creative way.|
During the class I use lots of movement games that are interesting and fun, like Name Game, Freeze Dance, Mirror Game, Shadow Game, Magician and Scarf and much more. That way, the whole family can participate, including mom, dad and children from different ages. Each class is one hour long. The Family Dance program was created by Luna Dance Institute to help families that were separated by court decision to reestablish their connection. About 12 years ago, the program was expanded to Oakland libraries, such as Cesar Chavez, West Oakland, Eastmont and 81st Street branches.
I have been teaching these classes for 10 years in person at libraries, child development centers and family resource centers in Oakland. Since the pandemic, I started teaching it on line through Zoom for Family Resource Centers, like Bananas, Lotus Bloom and Prescott-Joseph Center, all of them in Oakland.

Have you ever seen, the tail of a whale? The black and white patterns beneath the tail?
Every humpback’s pattern is unique. And to many it looks like Ancient Greek.
But for scientists, we tell them apart, And many of them have stolen our hearts.
Meet Nile, my favorite, join me and see, How fascinating humpback whales can be.
This 1-hour virtual program will be a tale about one of my favorite humpback whales--Nile. She was born in 1987, and I have seen her almost every year that I have been whale watching since 1994!
I'll share why she is my favorite, how scientists study humpbacks (by the patterns on their tails), and what we have learned. We will also "virtually" go inside the life-sized model of Nile to learn about how humans and whales are similar!
