    April 17, 2021, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Children's Area

    Youth are invited out for some STEAM fun at your library. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics and we’ll use these concepts in order to create great crafts and projects. For this session, we’ll supply all the materials you’ll need to do the Egg Drop Challenge where you’ll need to build a container that’s safe enough from keeping an egg from breaking from a fall. You won’t want to miss out.
