Kids Explore Learning with STEAM

Kids learn through fun at two new STEAM programs at the Grand Prairie Libraries. STEAM is Science with a helping of Art – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. Fun activities each month for kids will strengthen vocabulary, introduce concepts, and encourage logical thinking

“Cool After School:K-3” is the Warmack Branch Library’s new monthly STEAM program series for kids in kindergarten through third grade. At our monthly meetings, we’ll include time for a healthy snack, a multicultural story, and maybe even a special guest! The sessions, which are free, are scheduled once a month from 4:15 to approximately 5 pm.

Join us on February 18 to learn about  “The Scientific Method”, featuring the book “A Balloon for Isabel”, by Deborah Underwood.
Join us on March 18 to learn about  responsible pet care, with a special guest.
The Warmack Branch Library is located at 760 Bardin Rd. 972-237-5770.

"Steam Night"  welcomes kids of all ages to the Shotwell Library, located inside the Tony Shotwell Life Center. Join us at 6:30 pm on February 25 to explore fun hands on science and art activities at the library.  The Shotwell Library is located at 2750 Graham St. 972-237-7540.
