Everhart Museum S.T.E.A.M. Quest Challenge

 

S.T.E.A.M. Quest is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math based after school program exploring problem-solving skills through hands-on art and science based projects.

Over the course of 20 weeks, students will work under the direction of professional artists to brainstorm creative ways to solve problems using art, science and design. Classes will be held at three Lackawanna County Libraries. Students participating in the program will be introduced to the library’s catalog, referencing the collection while doing research.

In this program, children from grades k-8th grade will also work collaboratively with mentors from Big Brothers, Big Sisters to co-create a product that will serve a community need.

All 20 classes will be held at three of the Lackawanna County Libraries.
