STEM Program 3rd Friday of the Month

Posted by dthorn on

Our STEM Fridays in July were such a success that we want to continue offering this type of programming to school age kids. Join us the third Friday of each month for a different STEM  related program. Some will be high tech, some will be low tech, all will be fun! We will combine creativity, problem solving, critical thinking and dexterity to see what we come up with. All students of school age are welcome, we can work together to make sure everyone is able to participate!
