BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — During these cold winter months, it’s always tough for parents to find things for their kids to do that’s constructive and still fun. Well parents, look no further than the Broome County Public Library for a solution.
On the second Thursday of each month, the library is hosting a STEAM day right when school ends. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art+design, and math. Each event has tables of activities for kids and parents to partake in, learn new skills and knowledge in one or more of these fields.
This month, the event was hosted Thursday and Friday do offer the community an additional day of fun during this cold weather. During this time, kids and parents learned about engineering, and got to use 3-D pens to make amazing structures and designs.
Library staff are so excited to see kids and parents engaged and having fun while learning.
“It’s incredible. I mean libraries are all about fostering creativity and community and curiosity. It’s great to be able to see that in the kids, and the parents,” said Kelsey Matoushek, Youth Services Librarian at the Broome County Library.
There is no age limit for this event, so all families are encouraged to attend future STEAM days if they’re interested.
