STEAM Saturdays at AFCC: Mother Nature’s Miracles
April 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Come to the Abram Frink Jr. Community Center for a nature-related STEAM Saturday! At 11 a.m., Ryan the Bug Man will bring the incredible world of insects and bugs to life. Stick around after the presentation to get up close with live bugs.But the fun doesn’t end there – come any time between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. for more STEAM-related crafts and activities. Have you ever heard of a piano made of bananas? You can build one with Makey Makey circuit boards. Or build your own rocket out of paper, tape, and other materials then launch it 200 feet into the sky using our compressed air rocket launcher. We have app-enabled robot orbs you can program and control, Tinkertoys, a rollercoaster challenge, and an epic domino rally!
STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math – all the areas kids love to explore. Each month we’ll present a different STEAM-related program along with hands-on activities and crafts, designed with school-aged kids in mind, and made possible by the generous support of the Friends of Williamsburg Regional Library Foundation.
