The HTE exhibit came to life with demonstrations of shadows, wind, electric discharge, bow waves, lensing, and the collisional excitation of atoms. These demonstrations were assisted by the Library Volunteer Corps. Community partners helped to tout the special exhibit with their hands-on information booths. These Included the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Ozark Rock & Mineral Club, and Arkansas State University.

Number of patrons to participate: 20
A multi-generational workshop was conducted to understand seismic activity, and that we can measure our very own quakes, using homebuilt equipment and free computer software. This workshop gave an introduction to local earthquake history and the science behind earthquakes and their study. For those who wanted to experiment with earthquake detection, the workshop demonstrated two types of DIY seismographs and how to analyze the output data. There was no charge for the class.
