In an effort to appeal to middle school students (Grades 6 -8), the Youth Services Department of the Great Falls Public Library will be offering a hands-on activity time for middle school students only on the third Tuesday of the month in March, April, and May (March 19, April 16, and May 21) from 3:30 – 5:00 pm. This activity time is designed to build interest in using the library while providing a creative and fun learning environment.
Projects will be built/created by participants. All materials and directions will be provided, along with adult supervision. Finished projects will be displayed in the library.
In March, the activity time is Explore Marvel Moon. This session will provide two hands on activities and revealing information about the moon.
In April, Blowing in the Wind...Wind is in! will offer participants an opportunity to build a unique, simple wind turbine. It will challenge participants to produce more wind power than others in the group.
In May, Come Fly With Me will focus on Bernoulli’s principle, which will become easier to understand with simple activities demonstrating how it works. Participants will create and build a paper airplane and observe it soar under the concept of Bernoulli.
All events are free and open to the public. Participants may drop in, attend one or all of the events.
