The Mattapan Branch will be posting Summer Reading STEAM Challenges every week for kids ages 0-12 and their families! Kids will use their creativity to complete challenges that related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. There are countless ways to complete the challenges, so families with children of all ages can participate. Check the Mattapan Branch Facebook page every Monday at 10AM, from June 1-August 3 for a new challenge: https://www.facebook.com/bplmattapan/.
This week's Summer Reading STEAM Challenge is to learn about Outer Space! You can find several space-related science and engineering experiments from the Boston Children's Museum's Beyond the Chalkboard website: https://www.beyondthechalkboard.org/activity-cat/nasa/. Or, you can read about Outer Space in books, magazines, and educational websites. Find both non-fiction and fiction kids' books on OverDrive: https://bpl.overdrive.com/library/kids/collection/1082592.
If you'd like to share any of your Outer Space Explorations on the Mattapan Branch Facebook page, please email Children's Librarian Amy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
