Engineering with our STEAM Kids

Kids learned about aerodynamics, tensile strength, and structural engineering as part of our STEAM series on Tuesday.

First, they made paper airplanes and flew them using enormous rubber bands. Then, they built tree houses out of Lego blocks. Finally, they tested their tree houses’ structural strength with dodge balls!

So far our STEAM kids have made stop-motion videos and learned about basic scientific tenets by experimenting with candy.

The series continues next week. Each week, we’ll focus on a different aspect of STEAM. The upcoming sessions are:

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.
