In this story time program, visitors actively listen to "Horton Hears a Who!" by Dr. Seuss. Before the story is read, children make paper “elephant ears” to wear. After the story, they use their sense of smell to explore scent molecules that are too small to see. This story time can also be presented in Spanish by using the Spanish-language story book.
- There are very small things, too small for our eyes to see.
- Our sense of smell can sometimes detect tiny particles that are too small to see.
- Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
