Are you ready for a STEAM challenge?

This week's challenge is: A Raft for the Gingerbread man!

Oh no! The Gingerbread Man has outrun many creatures, but now he is on a riverbank and can run no more. Don't let the sly fox trick him and eat him up! Instead you can help the Gingerbread Man by building him a raft using just straws and pipe cleaners. When you are done building, tape a quarter to your paper gingerbread man and test out your raft in a bucket or your sink.

For Grades K-8

Pick up your STEAM Challenge kit at any of our locations (limited number of kits available), beginning on Monday, July 6, then get to work!

Location: Virtual Branch
Room:
Program Type: Arts & Crafts, Lectures/Speakers, Miscellaneous
Ages: Adults

Description:

If you spent your shutdown time like I did, you might have a stockpile of wine corks on hand. The artwork on corks these days is lovely and a shame to pitch in the trash. What do you do? Well, I have a suggestion. Turn them into charming keychains to keep or give as gifts. It's a great excuse to buy more wine!

Find this video on our YouTube channel July 13. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-KzaP2QfGNDuItfOjuKmng?view_as

Finally! A take and make for adults! Email jwildhagen@sjpl.lib.mo.us to request a kit to make your own cork keychain. Everything except pliers included. Kits will be available beginning July 13, and we will happily send to the branch of your choice. Allow time for delivery.
