The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore

I think we talked about this when LEGO Turtle was first built the wheelchair. What can't Legos do? Good luck, little buddy!

Almost two years ago, a wild box turtle was whisked to the Zoo's hospital with a severely broken shell. Our care team was able to save & rehabilitate him with an innovative wheelchair made from LEGOs. This morning, he was released back to his native habitat with a tracker. Goodbye LEGO Turtle, we will miss you! 🐢

Does Your Library Have a Library Telescope Program? A Library Telescope is a telescope owned by a library that can be borrowed just like a book. Usually it’s a modified Orion 4.5” StarBlast Reflector Telescope. What better way to bring astronomy to the youth of today, than to give them access to a quality telescope? Having a parent, or other adult, borrow the telescope and amaze a child with views of the Moon or a planet, could make a lasting impression. Maybe even lead to a career in astronomy or some other science. Hundreds of libraries across the United States have Library Telescope Programs that have been remarkably successful. A library can get a telescope program going for under $400. The telescope is modified in various ways so it is less likely to be damaged and parts are less likely to be lost. Shouldn’t your library have a Library Telescope Program? For more information see www.LibraryTelescope.org and page: Library Telescope.
