The Orange Public Library and Orange Public Library Foundation are proud to present year five of our exciting S.T.E.A.M for Teens series of hands-on workshops. This year tweens (6th grade and up) are invited as well.
S.T.E.A.M. is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry and critical thinking.
The end results are students who engage in hands on learning, problem-solving, learn to work in groups and develop a creative process. These are the innovators, educators and leaders of the future!
This year we kicked off our program on September 30th with “Exploring Quantum Mechanics with your Laser Pointer” presented by Dr. Justin Dressel from Chapman University. On October 28th we examine “Creative Concoctions“ by Elaine Benaksas Schwartz, Ph.D. from Chapman University.
On November 18th Patti Williams from Career Technology Education at Orange High School will present “Got Milk & More”. December 2nd will see Shannon Kane from Top Hat 8 Repertory showcase “Behind the Scenes-Live Theatre”. This year’s program concludes on December 16th with “Cybersecurity-Learn What it Will Take to Keep us Safe” lead by Irvin Lemus from Coastline Community College.
All programs will be on Saturdays from 2:00- 4:00 p.m. All sessions will take place in the Orange Public Library & History Center Community Room at 407 E. Chapman Ave. in Orange, CA.
The program is widely popular so we strongly suggest registration. Please call the Welcome Desk at (714) 288-2418 or stop by in person to sign up. Refreshments and snacks will be served. Participants may enter to win a laptop at each session for a grand prize drawing.
