Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice
Oct 4 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Upstate History Museum

 

Dinosaurs will roar into the Upstate South Carolina, when the Upcountry History Museum presents Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice. Crossing the threshold of this interactive exhibition means traveling back in time to explore the Age of the Dinosaurs.

 

Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice is the first child-centered exhibit in the country dedicated to expanding the understanding of dinosaurs and their habitats. Designed for young explorers, ages 3-10, the bilingual (Spanish and English) exhibit features three distinct sections that build on a child’s innate curiosity about dinosaurs: Land of Fire (a warm dinosaur habitat), Land of Ice (a cold dinosaur habitat), and a Field Research Station (complete with a Big Dig experience).

 

The steamy Land of Fire, present day Montana, introduces visitors to the Triceratops, T-Rex and the dinosaurs who called this environment home. Children can circle the land in insect costumes, buzz through a volcano with oozing lava, work through a swampy bog and identify an ecosystem of animals and plants.

 

No coats are needed for a trip across the Land of Ice where visitors meet the dinosaurs who made their homes in the cold climate of Alaska. Activities include: climbing rocky steps, breezing down an icy slide, and hopping across stepping stones in an icy river.

 

In the hands-on Field Research Station children and their caregivers don goggles and research vests, as they uncover dinosaur bones in a dig station and examine fossils to identify dinosaurs.

 

The exhibit builds on the popular fascination with dinosaurs and includes science, history, and literacy based activities to challenge all ages. Sculpted, touchable dinosaurs, featuring the most recent scientific findings about dinosaur colors, textures and structural form create opportunities for young
explorers to investigate clues that the dinosaurs left behind.

Coffee and Code is where we get together to hang out and work on projects that we care about. No script, no slide decks, just coffee and code.

What we’re about

Python Users Group that promotes the Python programming language in the Upstate of South Carolina. Emphasis is on providing computer science education (via Python) to really good problem solvers living in rural areas as part of https://hub-ology.org

We have an open team on keybase.io

The Great Greenville Baking Class
Oct 9 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
M. Judson Booksellers

Join Pastry Chef Leslie on Sunday, October 9th at 2:00 pm for a baking class!

If you’ve had anything bread-based from Camilla Kitchen, you know the magic that is Pastry Chef Leslie’s baking. Now she wants to share that with all of you! This will be an intimate class held in the Gallery (4th floor) of M. Judson for ten people, where you’ll prepare your dough from start to almost finish. While you’ll bake your bread at home (and get all those good smells), you’ll still get to end the baking class with a tasting. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday!

Your ticket covers the cost of ingredients and instruction, with the option to add on the featured cookbook.

WHY THIS BOOK?

Like many people, Leslie adores the Great British Baking Show, and thus, Paul Hollywood. The show played a big part in inspiring Leslie to invest in the art of baking, and gave her confidence to bake more and more and more. With the new season of GBBS airing now, she felt it was the perfect time to kick off her bread baking classes so that you might have that same confidence too.

WHAT IS THIS BREAD?

“Spelt is an ancient grain that has been around for thousands of years and recently come back into fashion. It has a nuttier taste than modern wheat flour but doesn’t contain as much gluten so it is mixed with wheat flour to give the loaf some lift. The combination of spelt and rye gives the bread a lovely earthy taste.

This recipe uses the ‘sponge’ technique: some of the mixture is left to ferment overnight, then used as the base of the final dough. This long fermentation gives the loaf a distinctive flavour.”

WHAT IS THE BOOK?

PAUL HOLLYWOOD’S BREAD by Paul Hollywood

Get baking with the master baker and judge of The American Baking Competition!

Paul Hollywood’s new book is all about bread – how to make it and how to use it. Not only does Paul teach you exactly how to make a variety of breads, but for each one there is a spin-off recipe that shows you how to make a fantastic meal of it.

The book has six chapters, each with five bread recipes – plus the spin-off recipes for main courses. Not only are Paul’s recipes delicious but they are also foolproof, with comprehensive step-by-step photographs. Try your hand at a basic white bloomer, which can be come a savory picnic loaf; stilton and bacon rolls, which are excellent served with celery soup; fluffy crumpets, which become the base for eggs Benedict; spinach doss, which is a natural pairing with chickpea masala; ciabatta, which the Italians have traditionally used as a base for tomatoey panzanella; pizza bases, which can become home-made fig, Parma ham and Gorgonzola pizzas; or white chocolate and raspberry bread, which makes for the best bread pudding you’ve ever tasted.
