Preschoolers can become “Young Scientists”

The Library is again hosting the free hands-on STEM learning program for tots

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 through the Library’s Children’s Room at 508-485-5031 or by emailing

Participants will learn STEM concepts through hands-on activities, story time, challenges and simple experiments.

The sessions will take place on Wednesday mornings from 10:30 – 11:15 am, beginning next week (November 2nd) and running through December 14th. (No class will be held on November 23rd.)

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.
