We LOVE the Stop Motion app for iPhone and Android! It’s a great boredom buster and STEM activity. Simply download the app, collect some objects from around the house (LEGOs, stuffed animals, literally anything!), and start creating! Here’s a tutorial video and take a look at our quick guide below.
Make a Dr. Seuss stop motion video at today’s After School program!
It’s leap week! 2020 is a leap year, which means February has one extra day. To celebrate, you can visit the library every day at OPL After School and be a scientist with our wind STEAM stations! These stations were provided by the Franklin Institute’s LEAP Into Science program. Today’s activity is engineering a wind powered LEGO car!
We’re learning about wind at tomorrow’s storytimes!
Ages 0-2 can experiment with wind and make a fan craft at Mother Goose on the Loose at 10:30am, and ages 3-6 can make this wind sock craft and become wind scientists at 11:15am.
Assist your child as they become a scientist this Saturday, February 22nd, at family storytime! Starting at 11am you can learn and experiment with wind. Build a wind-powered LEGO car, engineer a wind-proof tower, make a wind detector craft, and more! We’ll also have prompts at each station for practicing early literacy skills with your child. Storytime will be followed by Silly Safaris’ North Pole Show and LIVE REINDEER at 12pm!
Join us for this free and fun family event!
Ages 17 and under can learn and create with us every Tuesday in October from 3:45 to 4:45. We’re exploring fall-themed science, technology, engineering, art, and math activities. After-School STEAM will also incorporate Leap Into Science’s wind-theme programming. Registration is required, click here to sign up Free to attend October 1: Wind…
