MakeIT AAL Programs
MakeIT AAL programs are hands-on STEM education programs held on select Saturdays throughout the year, led by Integrative STEM Education majors, museum outreach partners, or library staff. These programs allow children and teens to learn about technology and science, in a fun way.
Topics include a variety of STEM disciplines and age ranges. Squishy circuits, stomp rockets, catapults, engineering challenges, and slime have been a few of the recent themes. We’ve had a deconstruction zone and tech toy petting zoo. Lancaster Science Factory, S.P.A.R.K.S., and Girl Scout STEM Mobile have all done great programs! See our events calendar for upcoming dates.
We welcome teen volunteers! High school students who would like to learn more about leading a STEM program can contact Laura Russell by calling the library. We also need teens to help at our Summer Reading opening kickoff party and the End-of-Summer-Reading party. To sign up or to find out about other volunteer opportunities, please contact Jessica Zook. You can also print and fill out the Volunteer Application and return it to any staff member at the library.
