STEM Programs for Children and Middle Schoolers

We’re starting the school year with two new STEM programs. These are:

Makey MakeyWorkshop. This is a free five-week program for sixth through eighth graders. Learn coding and circuitry through creative and collaborative projects. Starts Monday, September 30 and will continue for five weeks. 4-6 p.m. in the Community Room. Program is limited to eight participants. Sign up through the Information Desk in the Reference Room (pflreference@patten.lib.me.us or call 443-5141, ext. 12)

Wonder League Robotics. We’d love to enter teams in this national competition. The teams will work on four different challenges between October and January. There are two age groups: five to eight years and nine to eleven. We have the robots and the iPads. We need the interested students and some volunteer coaches! Informational meeting on Wednesday, September 25 from 4-5 p.m. in the Children’s Room.
