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.
We’re excited about the projects and can’t wait to share them with you!
