STEM3.png

Yes, we're still looking for volunteers for our proposed STEM program.

Back in May, we ran the following:

"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. 

Sound interesting?  Let us know if you're interested by clicking here."
