Program Description

Event Details

Families! Celebrate STEM and New Year's Eve with a special Take and Make bag! Stop by the South Side Library to pick up a bag.

Each bag contains science and art activities you can do at home that will let you explore different STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering, and math). Kids can make a confetti popper, decorate paper New Year's glasses and more!

These activities are recommended for ages five and up and should be completed with adult supervision. 

All bags will be available while supplies last.
