Maker Mobile taking STEAM on the road

Maker MobileFor the past year, the Pioneer Library System has introduced communities throughout its three-county area to new technology and ideas through its Maker Mobile.

This summer the Maker Mobile again will be hitting the roads of Cleveland, McClain and Pottawatomie counties for a series of events highlighting its offerings and also challenging local families to show off their skills in a project.

The Maker Mobile Tween/Teen and Adult Team Project will be offered at each of the 11 hometown libraries in the library system during June and July as part of this year's Summer Reading Program, "Build a Better World."

Teams featuring one adult and one tween or teen (ages 8 to 17) will work in pairs to create a charging station that can be used for multiple devices. The hands-on project will include elements of computer design, machine cutting, and construction.
