Other popular programs

Strings 'n' Things
String tricks, folk toys and games from times past--a favorite of young and old alike.  For children, this presentation offers a glimpse at what life might have been like between 1850 and 1950, before video games. For many adults, this is an opportunity to reminisce.

What's Bugging You?
Drawing on his Ph.D. in entomology and insect-related anecdotes, Gene presents an age-based exploration of the fascinating world of insects and spiders, complete with a visit from our arthropod ambassadors—Madagascar hissing cockroaches.

Traveling from preschools to prisons, Twice Upon a Time Storytellers have been sharing their tales together since 1999. Gene and Peggy's presentations blend this ancient oral tradition with personal narrative, science, history, modern nuance, cultural diversity and sometimes a soupcon of silliness to allow audiences to see the world in many new and imaginative ways.
