STEM Month For All Ages @Dennis!

March 12 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Attention STEM enthusiasts! March is New Jersey STEM Month and the Dennis branch is celebrating with a host of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs for kids of all ages.

March 6th at 2:00pm: Children ages 7-12 are invited to plan and build a maze for a bot using planks, connectors, bumper balls, pinwheels, and dominoes. Make tunnels, doorways, and obstacles for the little bot to navigate.

March 9th at 11am: Before clocks, watches, and smart phones, people used the sun and shadows to see the passage of time. Come to the library and construct your own sun clock! All materials will be provided and if the day is sunny, you can go outside and test it out right away! This program is for ages 6 and up.

March 12th at 2:00pm: Did you know you can make a harmonica using three household items? Ages 5-10 can learn how and teach the whole family! Learn about changing pitch by sliding straws and feel how vibration turns into sound!

March 23rd at 2:00pm: Attention families! Come in and challenge one another to see who can create a contraption that will prevent an egg from cracking after being dropped out of the 2nd story window! Kids versus parents, sibling versus sibling, teams or individuals are welcome to build a safety suit for a hardboiled egg. Lets see who’s egg survives the fall!

March 26th at 10:00am: Kids ages 2-7 can learn about eclipses and create a chalk drawing of the Sun’s corona, as seen during a total solar eclipse.

March 27th at 7:00pm: This program for teens is more STEAM than just STEM. The ‘A’ stands for art and the teens will be creating art by making a wall hanging of the phases of the moon. All materials are provided.
