Children ages five and older can learn how to experience and understand nature through technology at Do Space library in Omaha this Saturday.

Angela McGraw with the library said they’ll have five different stations where people can interact with new technology. The virtual reality station, for example, gives people the eyes of a hawk.

“And one of the stations that we have set up is virtual reality and so our guests will learn what it feels like to fly like a bird,” McGraw said.

McGraw said guests at the free event will also get to draw 3-D doodles with a special pen, among other activities. The tech and nature event takes place this Saturday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. CST.
