The Southborough Library is again hosting a 6-week Young Scientists program for kids aged 3-5 this spring.

The free STEM program focuses on teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. It’s a special program run by STEM Beginnings and funded through the YMCA & Community Partnership.

Sessions will take place on Tuesday mornings from 11:30 – 12: 30 pm, beginning today, April 25 and running through June 6th. Kids must register to attend. 

Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. (The good news is siblings are welcome.)

In the sessions, kids will learn concepts through hands-on activities, story time, challenges, and simple experiments. 

STEM for Beginnings promises their programs offer “fun-filled” learning opportunities:

Our main goal is to introduce STEM-related concepts through effective instruction and enjoyable activities. We always believe that children learn best when they are having fun.

We also believe that the creation of a fertile ground for learning starts during a child’s early years. We aim to stimulate young minds and inspire them to create and cultivate curiosity toward these disciplines. As a result, we hope to be able to contribute in shaping their intellectual development, opportunities for future study, and choices of career, as well as their capability to make informed decisions in the future.

Sign up is through the Library’s Children’s Room at 508-485-5031.
