How Did They Build That? Science Saturday February 23rd


Do you love to build amazing structures? Design the perfect tree house? Dig in the dirt and make amazing roads and tunnels?

Join us at the Marshall-Lyon County Library for Science Saturday on February 23, 2013 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. to learn more about architecture, construction, and engineering.  We will read and learn about actual buildings, explore the physics behind construction, and practice designing our own structures.

We also will provide some ideas for more explorations you can do at home.  This program is for children ages 5 to 10 and an adult partner.


Science Saturday focuses on literacy in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  We want to support parents in active learning with their children, encourage use of library resources for lifelong learning, and inform parents about literacy and STEM resources.

Science Saturday is co-sponsored by Literacy Volunteers of Southwest Minnesota and the Marshall Lyon-County Library.  The library is located at 201 C Street in Marshall.  We invite community members with expertise in these areas to help us plan fun, factual, and hands-on science, math, and technology experiences.


We would love to see you there!
