The library has been focused on incorporating STEAM demonstrations and activities in the summer programming this year. What’s STEAM? It’s education with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, math and the use of art to design. Annie Lisowski from the UW-Extension offered 3 Sidewalk Science sessions for pre-schoolers: sharing an experiment with vinegar, baking soda and food coloring, drawing houses and creating pet rocks!
Kids in the C-FC 4-H program created munsen ring fidget spinners using assorted hardware, while learning about friction and centripetal/centrifugal forces. They also studied prosthetic devices and learned about how they are used.
