Exploration: Kids tackle STEM at the library

Posted on August 23, 2018 at 6:00 am

Demystify technology. Create slime. Build your own video game using Bloxels. Check out these kids’ STEM programs at our libraries.

Take It Apart

Curious about how things work? Now you can take them apart and demystify technology! Using basic tools, gloves, and safety goggles, we’ll take apart electronics, small appliances, and other devices donated by Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest. Though these gadgets no longer serve their purpose, they may still reveal secrets.

For grades K+: Kids 8 and under must bring an adult.
