New San Diego library program aims to engage kids with science, computers

From San Diego Union Tribune

” A new program aimed at encouraging children ages 9 to 12 to get interested in computers, math and science launches next week at all 36 branches of the San Diego library system.Called “Spring into STEAM,” the program will offer workshops in March, April and May. It begins March 2.“We know that science education is so important now, and technology is changing so fast,” said Misty Jones, library director. “We see this as a way to get kids involved, to expose them to new ideas and help them explore the world around them.”STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math, and there will be workshops in each area. This year’s theme is “Bug Out!” so the science workshop will feature an entomologist explaining the survival strategies of insects. The engineering workshop will focus on bees as builders. For math, the kids will explore spatial geometry by making 3-D paper insects.”
