Cracking the code with math

Darin used math and pattern recognition to find the hidden message in our code.

Our STEAM kids constructed shapes from pretzel sticks—who here remembers what a trapezium is?—and used pattern recognition to find coded, hidden messages during our Math program on Feb. 28.

That program concluded our STEAM session where, each week, we used hands-on activities to learn more about science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.

So far, our STEAM kids have built noodle pyramids, used 3D printers, tried basic codinglearned about fluorescence by paintingflew enormous paper airplanesmade stop-motion videos, experimented with candy and more!

And the fun’s not over. A new STEAM series begins this month.

For five consecutive Tuesdays, we’ll focus on different aspects of STEAM curriculum:

Each of these sessions begin at 4 p.m. at our Main Branch.

They are free and open to all kids in first through fifth grade. However, registration is required. Parents must sign up their child for each session separately. Registration begins two weeks before each respective session.

To sign up or for more information, call the library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

In the meantime, the library is stuffed with resources to help you learn about sciencetechnologyengineeringart, and math. And they all come free with your Mentor Public Library card.
