The Springdale Free Public Library has consistently empowered learners to be prepared for an increasingly technology driven future. Over the past year we have created two after school programs that challenge students to develop their creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. In our Geraldine Yanni Science Club we serve 4-6th graders, create numerous projects, and hold club meetings every month. Some of the projects they have worked on: Water Bear Hunt, Brain Dissection, Scat & Tracking, and Frost in a Can. Our second program, Maker Mondays we use the STEM principles to engage learners. This program serves middle school children. Maker Mondays meets twice a month, we average about fourteen projects per school year. Some of the projects they have worked on include: Magnetic Slim, MakeyMakey, Kinetic Sculpture, Shrinky dink Science. For our young scientists and explorers, we have partnered with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Science Center, and various other organizations for engaging monthly presentations. We have held 45 programs, and served 1,125 children ages 0-12 Years in the past three years.
