5. STEAM at the LibraryStarting March 2nd at the Kannapolis Branch Library, every Friday children from ages 5-12 can drop in for some STEAM activities.
STEAM is all about focusing on the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math side of things.
According to this SteamEdu.com, "STEAM is a way to teach how all things relate to each other, in school and in life. It’s more fun than traditional learning styles and makes more sense to all types of learners because it is based on the natural ways that people learn and are interested in things."
Ages 5-12 — Drop in for some STEAM activities. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). Read More »
