art and STEM in the library
|robots from recycled items|
Make n' Takes for the K-5th grade crowd, Teen Art for the 6th-12th grade crowd. This week found the younger crowd making robots out of recyclable household items, tin foil, and bling objects: stickers, pipe cleaners, fuzzy balls, etc. Such a simple idea, but the kids (and parents!) had a blast and were really proud of what they put together. WIN!

Tuesdays are STEM (Science Tech Engineering Math) days at the Library; Prairie Dawn and I were super pumped for this past Tuesday's morning because we'd farmed out the morning K-5th grade program, bringing in a group called Snapology, who say of themselves, "We provide a fun environment for children to learn math, science, technology, engineering and literacy concepts using Lego® bricks and other similar building tools." The program was super fun and everyone had a blast.
