Learning can be fun: Join MPL’s Kid’s Exploratorium Program!

In a world full of social media savvy students, television, video games and tablets, the interest in school activities and content areas is slowly dropping. Most would rather watch their favorite show or text their friends then engage in team building and essential and engaging learning activities.

Moline Public Library is trying to light that genuine interest learning fire back under local students through their S.T.E.A.M. Exploratorium programs.

S.T.E.A.M, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math, is a new approach in schools to get students to become more engaged in their learning, and attain those vital critical thinking skills that are essential in the world. Each week, the library hosts a different S.T.E.A.M activity for students to participate in, such as Rocket Bottle creations, fossil dig simulations, and more! 

The S.T.E.A.M Exploratorium program takes place on Wednesdays, from 2PM – 3:30PM at the Moline Public Library.

To find out more, visit the website or call the library at 309-524-2440.
