Full S.T.E.A.M. ahead!
Beginning this fall, together with our usual literacy offerings, we are incorporating more S.T.E.A.M. into our children’s programs!

What’s S.T.E.A.M.?  It is an approach to education that focuses on science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics by providing kids with lots of hands-on activities and experiments. Each program will be designed to engage the imagination and stimulate the curiosity of our future computer programmers, scientists, mathematicians, artists and engineers.

S.T.E.A.M. Exploration Stations are planned for preschool children (ages 3-5) at 10:30am on the second Wednesday and the following Saturday of each month at our Wausau headquarters. Occasionally, other Preschool Story Times will feature S.T.E.A.M experiments and activities, too.

Additionally, monthly S.T.E.A.M. programs are being planned for school-age children (grades K-5), including events for tweens (grades 3-5) specifically.

We are following national recommendations by expanding our educational opportunities for children and providing additional activities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.  These free programs are intended to be fun, engaging and beneficial for your children as they grow into successful teens and adults.

I did my book review for this event. I had to check out a Physics book to review for an online college test. It was interesting to see this technical subject from a religious perspective. I was glad I had a technical text book to fall back on, but it was interesting.
