S.T.E.A.M.punks @ Your Library

Why S.T.E.A.M.?

Right now there is a major movement in government, business, and education that is geared toward educating more students in these areas.

Why?

The reason for this, is that, this field has seen the largest job growth in the 21st century and there is already a shortage of workers!

S.T.E.A.M.punks @ the Library

This program was started in 2014 in response to a need for our young patrons who weren't involved with Robotics.  We have studied hydraulics and have used syringes and air tubing for aquariums to build boxes with lids that open, catapults made with spoons and popsicle sticks that launch marshmallows, and we have explored coin cell batteries, L.E.D. lights, and copper tape to build a circuit.  Some of our other projects have included stomp rockets, drawing our own mandalas, exploring MineCraft, and so much more.

This program is intended for ages 8-12.  Camdenton Library is hosting a Toddler S.T.E.A.M.punks on the 1st Thursday of the Month at 10 a.m.
