Your kids will be fascinated and intrigued by the programs we are having as part of the Maryland STEM Festival! We'll have STEM-y storytimes, show you how to connect electronics and circuits in creative ways, how to create cool art with floppy disks, a stop motion animation workshop, potions that bubble, and many more exciting STEM events! These events will run all through November, but some require registration.
Energy Action Month and we've got a series of energy exploration events where you can discover tips and projects to save energy and money at home! Topics will include weatherization, lighting, heating/cooling, and energy-efficient appliances. Bring a copy of your utility bill to these programs and you can be entered to win a sustainability kit! This series is co-sponsored by the Department of Environmental Protection, Pepco, and the Department of General Services.
We invite you to explore and discover science and technology at MCPL!
