Discovery Days on East Campus wrap up the summer with a fun and fascinating project offered by the University Libraries at the Dinsdale Family Learning Commons. Help us weave yarn into a “tempestry” of the year 1964 (when the C.Y. Thompson Library opened). Tempestries are temperature tapestries that represent the daily high temperature for a given year and location using data from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In future programming, we will create a tempestry from 2020 data to visualize climate change in Lincoln over 53 years. All supplies will be provided. Learn more about the Tempestry Project at: https://www.tempestryproject.com

Other activities offered at Dinsdale includes tours of the renovated building, visit the Nebraska Hall of Agricultural Achievement kiosk, pick up a seeded bookmark to use or plant. Dunkin Donuts will be offering samples of iced coffee and donuts. Join us for the fun and check out the other activities on East Campus including the Farmer’s Market, entertainment, and more at: https://discoverydays.unl.edu/
