The Livermore Public Library will offer its children’s STEM classes this summer with outdoor, socially-distant sessions. School-aged children in grades 1-5 will enjoy activities, experiments, trivia, and more. Activities are designed to develop skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, also known as STEM. Exploring STEM through hands-on fun will foster a love for the sciences and math and get children ready for the upcoming school year. Sessions run from June 15–August 10, 2021 on Tuesdays, 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Civic Center Library, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue, Livermore, CA 94550.
Library STEM classes are free of charge. No registration required. Masks required for all attendees and students are asked to observe social distancing. Classes are weather permitting.
