It won't be up until around the fall, but Greenwich Library's Teen & Children's Services departments are planning to set up a "buddy program" version of STEM.  The plan we're working out right now would team up teen volunteers/mentors with younger students (grades 3-5) for a four week program.  Each teen/child would alternate between different projects on a given week. 

Various projects would include using Legos, snap circuits, circuit boards, K'nex & Blocky.  Students would also construct brush bots and use computer programs like Build with Chrome and Scratch, among others.

Our volunteer advisory group, the Student Leadership Council (AKA Student Leaders), consisting of students from grades 8-12, will have their next  meeting on Thursday, May 14 at 5:30 pm,  in the second floor "Teen Central" area in Greenwich Library. They'll discuss using library resources to initiate, develop & realize projects relevant to their peer group in exchange for community service hours.

Lately we've been getting queries from older students about tutoring or working with younger, pre-teen students.  To clarify things, Students Leadership Council members assist the library to provide essential programs to their particular age group  (grades 8-12) as well as contributing to the library community. If you want to assist or mentor students from pre-K to grade six, you should contact our Children's Services department

Snacks & refreshments will be served.  Email us here, or call Ed and/or Everett at (203) 622-7918 or 625-6507 for more info. Hope to see you there!
