It’s All about the S.T.E.A.M.!
This summer Peoria Public Library is all about summer reading and challenges. Not just reading challenges but S.T.E.A.M. challenges. This year we’ve taken our summer reading program “Reading by Design” and added some S.T.E.A.M. to it. So if you and your child are wanting to plunge into the world of science, technology, engineering, art, or math we’ve got you covered – in the shallow end at least. Here’s a chance to get your feet wet and have a blast discovering the wonder of learning new things.
Do you know how to turn a penny green? How about the ingredients for slime? Or maybe you’d like to make a robot hand out of paper, tape, straws and string. It can be done. There’s instructions to make catapults out of craft sticks for plenty of pompom hurling. Make an optical illusion or see if in a room of 23 people two will have the same birthday. Do some online coding or tinker with some technology. So much fun in one place. Can’t choose? “Eenie meenie minee mo” usually works for me or just do them all in order if you like. But do them. Your kids will thank you.
