JACKSON Wyo.– Young scientists can find inspiration beyond books at the Teton County Library, thanks to an upcoming program and a new mini-collection from the Department of Youth Services.
A Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) magic show will take place at the library, this Saturday, July 30 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Ordway Auditorium. Complimentary tickets will be available at the youth desk 30 minutes before showtimes.
“We call Paul Brewer ‘our favorite magician,’ not only because kids love his interactive showmanship and sense of humor, but also because he’s always adding new tricks and creating new themes for his shows. “, says Beth Holmes, coordinator of the library’s youth program. . “STEM on Stage is the latest example.”
Youth Services has also added a mini-collection of seven different STEAM kits for kids to check out and take home. Each kit is designed to inspire kids to DIY, with themes like “Machines and Gear”, “Robotics and Coding” and even music and kindergarten readiness. The kit catalog can be found by visiting tclib.org/STEAM.
