It would consist of a theme, stories that are read to the children, games and movement activities, and songs.
We need your input. If you have a toddler, please take a minute or two to respond to our questionnaire (below). Thank-you for your participation!

July 20– Hockey Scholar Workshop (limit 20 kids) 1-3 PM
The National Hockey League (NHL) and the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) have partnered to create a web-based course that teaches science, technology, engineering and math and how these are part of the game of hockey. Mr. Brandon Wright, science instructor at CCHS, will lead the 2-hour hands-on workshop that concentrates on things like angles, rates and ratios, states of matter, force and energy. You will have a ton of fun with hockey as you realize the science behind the game. The workshop will be limited to 20 children in grades 5-8 this past year.
Those who complete the 2-hour course will receive free tickets to a hockey game in Kearney in September, compliments of the Kearney Storm Hockey Team.

The first grant is for our Launch Pad Mobile Makerspace! We’ll be creating a mobile space within the library, where people can gather to create, invent, and learn! The makerspace will include fun activities that will focus on: STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
The second grant is for an Edgerton Explorit Center Science Program ~ “Bubbles” for kids during 2017 Summer Reading. It will also be used to purchase jump ropes and hula hoops for fun fitnesss/health-related events.
