NE Library "Catapult" Stem Event Tomorrow

2014 Summer of Learning: Zone In

Friday from 2-3pm, the Northeast Library (6801 35th Avenue NE) is having a teens event, called "Catapults" as part of its summer learning STEM program.

The information says:

Watch out for flying projectiles! Design and test a catapult with staff from Pacific Science Center, then join a team to work on a distance challenge. For ages 8-12. Registration is required.

Through August 31, the Seattle Public Library’s free school-age through teens summer of learning  program “Zone In!” will feature a new focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math skills, funded by Google, The Seattle Public Library Foundation and U.S. Bank.

All Seattle Public Libraries received “science kits” donated by Google, which contain fun building materials, to help children practice their science and engineering skills.

The Library is also helping teens and tweens improve their digital media skills, such as art, activism, robotics, 3-D printing, computer programming, music, history and photography.

The Northeast branch summer schedule for children is
here and for teens/tweens is here.
