March Programs

Paper Airplane Dynamics – a family program

Wednesday, March 18; 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

World record holder John Collins – better known as ‘The Paper Airplane Guy’ – uses paper airplanes to demonstrate aerodynamic principals in this hands-on, immersive science program for the whole family. 
With a concentration on fluid dynamics, you will experience John’s love of science, origami and flight, making for a mesmerizing presentation.  

While having fun, everyone will learn about and get to practice:

• Wing Loading
• Center of Gravity
• Center of Lift
• Control Surfaces
• Glide Ratio
• Dihedral Angle
• Drag
• Canard Design and more

You’ll be amazed as paper airplanes glide by gently, streak swiftly, circle, loop, flap their wings, tumble, flip over and fly back upside down. The concepts behind the fun are explained without the overwhelming equations of fluid dynamics. 

To bring it full circle, John’s techniques will be shared so everyone has a chance to create a world record plane and learn how to throw and adjust their aircraft.

This program is arranged through Class Act. 

RSVP/Tickets: Advance reservations are encouraged. No charge for the event.

“Not Enough Apologies: Trauma Stories”

Tuesday, March 31; 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Doors Open at 6:00 p.m.

Join us for this documentary from Wisconsin Public Television exploring the lasting effects of traumatic experiences on children and adults, and new responses to advocating for and assisting those with trauma. 

The film shares how adverse childhood experiences can result in changes in the brain, leading to cascading behavioral and mental health problems. The film takes viewers inside juvenile courtrooms to understand the experiences of children in need of protection and support services. The documentary also looks at how service providers across the state are working to be responsive to trauma in efforts to change the trajectory for affected children.

Following the film, a local panel of experts will discuss the role they play to address trauma and reverse the course of impact that Racine children experience. Panelists will include:

• Lisa Lequia- Assistant Director of Student Services, Racine Unified School District
• Kerry Milkie- Manager, Youth and Family Division, Racine County Human Services
• Deputy Chief William Macemon- Racine Police Department
• Robin Matchett-Schmidt- Child and Family Therapist II, Children’s Wisconsin Community Service
