CurioCity: STEAM and Beyond
CurioCity: STEAM and Beyond!
The Long Beach Public Library is launching an exciting new series of in-person programming designed to introduce participants ages 12 and up to a wide array of creative interests within the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). Drones, interactive electronics, and modular synthesizers are just some of the engaging topics that participants will be able to explore. The series kicks off on Saturday, October 2nd at 2:00 PM at the Billie Jean King Main Library with the inaugural module featuring Radio Control/Semiautonomous Robotics, presented by a local drone expert who will guide participants through the history of this tech up to its current form.
Hosted in the Studio makerspace at the Billie Jean King Main Library, this new series aims to provide insight and hands-on exploration into various STEAM fields through bi-weekly themes. Each two-week module will feature a presentation by a local expert in the field, followed by two hands-on programs hosted by Library Studio staff. Every two weeks through mid-December, a new module will premiere, featuring new guest professionals and exciting follow-up activities.
