STEAM Team! Renewable Energy

Monday, Nov. 3, 10 & 17, 3:15 – 5 p.m.
Children ages 10-12 will learn about renewable energy sources in this three-week program.  We will explore the history of energy consumption as well as the reasons for pursuing renewable energy sources.  The group will explore solar, water, and wind power using K’Nex Education® Kits.  These programs will be inquiry based; children will have the opportunity to formulate questions based on their natural curiosity and then find answers and conclusions based on the hands-on exploration of each topic. What is STE(A)M education?  The concept of STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) programming is an initiative to encourage children in the United States to take an interest in the sciences.  STEM (now STEAM – A for arts) has come to the forefront in the American education system.  The Children’s Library’s goal is to offer STEM programming that allows children the time and means to explore science concepts in a fun, relaxed environment. Ages 10-12.  Registration required, no fee.  Sponsored by the Amadeo Family Fund.15
