September STEAM takes over on Fridays

Littlebits byRualriWith no school on Fridays this year in the Noble Public Schools, it’s a chance for the Noble Public Library to give tweens and teens an outlet as science and technology take over in its weekly September STEAM events. Programs are hosted from noon to 1 p.m. each Friday in the month, on Sept. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30.

Students in grades six through 12 are invited to explore a variety of the Pioneer Library System’s STEAM Power Maker Kits, which focus on science and technology in an engaging and hands-on way.

Registration is required in advance to attend each week’s event.
