Friends of the Library announce STEM scouts

The Friends of the Crandon Public Library are excited to announce that a STEM Scouts program will be taking place at the Crandon Public Library beginning this fall and Crandon students in the third to fifth grade are invited to participate in this weekly after school program.

STEM Scouts is a coed pilot program that is designed to focus on the fun and exciting opportunities for youth in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through weekly meetings and four- to six-week modules that cover a variety of disciplines, STEM Scouts offers hand-on learning opportunities designed to be fast-paced, thought provoking, and fun. STEM Scouts will show youth how to apply STEM in their everyday lives and encourage them to develop those experiences into a future career.

Some of the fun activities scheduled this school year include: designing and building a laser light maze, programming and racing robots, making magnetic slime, and much more.
