STEM Saturdays Offer Science Projects

Participants ages 8 and up are invited to STEM Saturdays, a series of hands-on science and technology projects hosted at the Adams County Public Library. Guiding Ohio Online technology trainer Trevin Wolfe will lead science projects, computer coding classes, and STEM-related activities at each library.

November’s theme is Electricity, and projects include learning about electrical circuits by building a simple generator from DIY parts, and experimenting with how electrical circuits work by using Snap Circuits to power lights, sirens, doorbells, motion sensors, and more.

A series of upcoming events is listed below.

Please call your local library to register, as supplies are limited. To request a special date and time for a class or group, please call 937-386-0089. All ages are welcome to participate, but activities are best suited for ages 8 and up.

STEM Saturdays are sponsored in part by Guiding Ohio Online, an LSTA grant awarded to the Adams County Public Library by the State Library of Ohio.
