The Southborough Library is again hosting a 6-week Young Scientists program for kids aged 3-5.
The free STEM program focuses on teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. It’s a special “enrichment series” program run by STEM Beginnings and funded through the YMCA & Community Partnership.
The program is free, but registration is required and space is limited to 12 students – and when I checked, there were only a few spots left. So, sign up quickly.
Participants will learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts through hands-on activities, story time, challenges and simple experiments.
The sessions will take place on Friday mornings from 11:00 – 12: 00 pm, beginning next week (November 1st) and running through December 6th. (No class will be held on November 29th, Black Friday.)
Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Siblings are welcome. And the adults are encouraged to join the fun (and help their kids).
The instructors, STEM Beginnings, promise 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.
