Full STEAM Ahead: Lost in the Woods? Make your own Compass! Last program!

Full STEAM Ahead is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math program for 8 to 11 year old tweens each Thursday morning at 10:30 AM in the Tech Room on the Library's Second Floor. We'll build boats, make a lighthouse, construct marble runs, concoct moon sand, and much more! Registration is required and the program is limited to twenty kids. This is our last children's program for the summer.

**PLEASE NOTE**Full STEAM Ahead is for children between the ages of 8 and 11. Younger children may find the daily activity too difficult for them to complete. The goals of each program are to help kids learn how to follow instructions and then let them attempt to complete the activity or craft by themselves while only giving assistance when needed. If you are looking for a program with an activity for younger children, please check out our Wild Wanderers program at 2 PM on Wednesdays or our Saturday self-directed programs-The Craft House (6-11 years old) that alternates every Saturday with STEM PLAY Day (All ages). Neither of those require registration and take place between the hours of 1-3 PM.

**ALSO**All of our children's programming requires parents to remain in the activity room or area with their children during the programs. This means that:
*During programs that are held in the children's department, parents must stay in the children's department.
* If programs are held upstairs in the library's community room (Wild Wanderers, Full STEAM Ahead), parents must stay in the community room.
* If the program is held outside of the library(Stories, Songs, and S'mores, StarWalk, & Wrap-Up Party) please remain in the area with your children.

There is plenty of seating in our activity areas available for parents to sit in on the programs with their children. Please do not leave your child(ren) unattended in the library or other areas because library staff are not responsible for unattended children at any time. Thank you for your understanding on this issue.
