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.
Ages 8 and up, join Tara at the West Union Library on Saturday, October 20 from 10:00 a.m. til 12:45 p.m. for STEM Saturday. Come create your very own short spooky stop-motion animated movie, just in time for Halloween. We’ll provide the stop-motion animation camera, software, and some props and figures, and you bring a plot and design! Save your short movie to take with you on Google Drive, YouTube, or a flash drive, and share your spooky creation with others, if you wish. For more information, call Tara at 937-544-2591. This activity works best for one participant at a time, so call 937-544-2591 to reserve a time slot in advance.
Ages 8 and up can join Michael at the Manchester Library on Saturday, October 27 between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. for STEM Saturday. Come explore how binary code works, and get some practice with binary programming by building bead jewelry that spells out a message in binary code. For more information, call Michael at 937-549-3359.
