Join us at the library for this drop-in program held every Tuesday from June 5th through July 11th.  During this program you will work together to complete fun activities and challenges with a focus on science, technology, engineering, art, and math.  Each session will have a fun theme, feature our new robot friends, the Ozobots, and include our S.T.E.A.M. playground.   This program is recommended for ages 8 and up.  Younger children are welcome, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

Tinkerer Tuesday Themes This Year Are:

June 5th: The Air Around Us–Study how air moves by completing fun activities and challenges including balloon powered boats, marshmallow shooters, and more.

June 12th: Kitchen Science & Paper Bag S.T.E.M. Challenges– Complete a surprise S.T.E.M. challenge, and learn about some fun experiments you can do over and over again with things found in your kitchen.

June 19th:  Power Up–Learn about electricity with squishy circuits, simple motors, and more.

June 26th:  The World Within–Learn about the muscular system by making an articulated hand, create a fake lung, and more to learn about what goes on inside your body.

July 3rd:  Going Green–Learn about the world around us through experiments, art activities, and more.  Our day will include making our own recycled seed paper.

July 10th:  Fun & Games–Create a marble run and a car for an egg to drive at our last Tinkerer Tuesday of the summer.

Each session will include many more hand-on learning activities and will help participants earn their Summer Learning Badges.
