Post Date:02/05/2020 4:20 PM

STEAM-Fair-imageThe Carrollton Public Library will host the third annual Spring Break STEAM Fair on Friday, March 13 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 5-12 years old from a variety of local businesses in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Activities are supplied by Castle Hills Chiropractic, GoEngineer, Metrocrest Amateur Radio Society, My Passion for Science, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and Schneider Electric. Admission is free, no registration is required, and parents are welcome to join in the fun with their kids. Supplies to be used in free play will be provided.

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 build, mazes to create, 3D objects to print, and more to explore. Learn about your central nervous system and spine, how amateur radios work, and watch experiments on density and diffusion with candy.

The STEAM Fair wraps up a week of free Spring Break fun at the Library presenting a different boredom-busting activity each day of the week for children ages 5-12 years.
