Looking for something fun and interesting to do after school?
Public and homeschool students in grades 6-8 are invited to check out the Tween STEAM program on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:00 at the Newfield Public Library.
Wed 1/8 Science of Snowflakes
It’s January and that means snow! Whether you like to ski, skate, sled or catch them on your tongue, there’s a lot more to these flakes than meets the eye.
Wed 1/15 Makey-Makey: Sketch It, Draw It! Play Your Own Instrument A fun music-making adventure awaits you at the Library. No musical experience required. Come be a part of the Library’s house band on an instrument you create.
Wed 1/22 Tween Book Club: City of Ember Our first tween Book Club kicks off this week. Stop by the library to sign up and borrow a copy of the book. Our meet up will have science activities and book discussion over snacks. Attendees also get to choose a free book from the Library “Book Store”. Space is limited to 10 participants.
Wed 1/29 Game Design, Part 1 Ever dream about being a Game Tester? How about a career as a game designer? Join us for this two-part Game Design program that gives you a taste of both experiences.
Let the Library be your Laboratory for all things STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics).
While most of the program activities are drop-in, we do require students to have a participation form on file. There will be some activities that require registration due to space but we’ll let you know about those!
The program runs weekly through June 2020 and is made possible by a grant from the Bernard Carl and Shirley Rosen Library Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
