The Pequot Library was stringing along a bunch of aspiring scientists last week.

The occasion was the library's weekly Story and Science Hour, which combines a favorite children's book with a science workshop.

This session -- focusing on the book, "Strega Nona" by Tomie dePaola -- challenged youngsters to use their noodles to try to make spaghetti dance. Leading the fun experiment in learning was Susan Ei, the children's librarian.
