STEAM Saturday

You might have heard that our Summer Reading theme this year is Fizz, Boom, READ! We are highlighting all things science. Don't miss our display cube in the Children's Room. You'll find sea monkeys, an ant farm, a potato clock and other objects to observe.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) is everywhere! You can incorporate more science into your child's life simply by focusing on the power of observation.
When you take time to stop and look at something in nature, practice asking, "I wonder why...?" or I wonder how....?" Then allow your child to make his or her own hypothesis. It doesn't matter if it's accurate or not. The important part is allowing your child to of observe, wonder, and think. Later, if you want to find the answer, there are many books in our collection that help him or her learn about the natural world.
