Program Details

With six hands-on learning stations, library guests will be able to discover just how important it is to have all the pieces when creating something new. They will also learn that it takes more than one person to turn an idea into something truly amazing. Once participants have had a chance to explore all of the on-site activities, they will receive a take-home project to continue the learning.
