STEM opportunities at your local library | Check it out

Youth Services Librarian Whitney has hosted Teen STEM programs every month this year. Some of the activities included building roving robots and snap circuits, designing gingerbread houses and bridges, exploring math in art, and playing a live-action game of “Angry Birds.”

There will be STEM programs in August just for teens, such as making ice cream and building solar ovens.
