The Santa Barbara Public Library System offers a variety of programming supporting science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics -- STEAM. STEAM represents the practice of incorporating these topics in a multi-disciplinary manner, rather than siloing the concepts from each other.
Curiosity Club is moving to a new time: Fourth Thursdays at 3:30 pm!
Kids 7-12 years old are invited to participate in experiments, design challenges, and more, in Central Library's monthly Curiosity Club. Past activities have included magnetic slime, paper airplane building, Rube Goldberg machines, planetary exploration, and more! Check the calendar for this month's activity.
