Carrollton Library Hosts Second Annual Spring Break STEAM Fair
The Carrollton Public Library will host the second annual Spring Break STEAM Fair on Friday, March 15 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at Josey Ranch Lake Library (1700 Keller Springs Road).
The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Fair will provide hands-on experiments for ages 6-12 from a variety of local businesses in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Activities are supplied by Schneider Electric, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, UT Dallas, GoEngineer, and iCode. Admission is free, no registration is required, and parents are welcome to join in the fun with their kids.
Each of the hands-on, inquiry-based activities involved at this come-and-go event will allow participants to boost their knowledge, increase their imagination, and inspire new ways to integrate the five disciplines into their everyday lives.
There will be kits to assemble, circuits to investigate, mazes to build, and more to explore. The STEAM Fair wraps up a week of Spring Break Shenanigans at the Library presenting a different FREE boredom-busting activity each day for children ages 6-12 years.
The week’s activities start on Monday, March 11 at 12 p.m. with a Movie Marathon of the Hotel Transylvania 1, 2, and 3 at Josey Ranch Lake Library.
On Tuesday, March 12 from 1-3 p.m., visit Hebron & Josey Library (4220 N. Josey Lane) to create some Book Art. The Library will be upcycling old books to generate unique craft projects or one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
