Full STEAM Ahead @ Penn Area Library

science_discovery_centerThe Penn Area Library is pleased to announce that our new Science Discovery Center is now open for all young budding scientists!

A very special thank you to:

  • The Michael J. and Aimee Rosinko Kakos Fund of the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County, which provided STEAM items such as specimens, musical instruments, discovery tubes, mazes, building sets, and much more.

  • The Friends of the Penn Area Library, who provided a child-sized storage unit to house the materials.

  • Our Children’s Services Coordinator, Pat Cappeta, and volunteer Barb Baker for presenting six outstanding STEAM preschool classes from September through October.

Six discovery kits will be available for parents, teachers, and childcare facilities to borrow: Insects & Spiders; Weather; Trees; Body & Senses; Oceans; and Health & Nutrition.

Be sure to visit the Library soon and have fun with your child exploring science concepts!
