Photograph of lightning coming down from the sky striking a field.Electrified!: A STEAM Program at the Big Island Library
Our January thru April STEAM programs are inspired by the book Now and Ben, The Modern Inventions of Benjamin Franklin by Gene Barretta.  One of the things Benjamin Franklin is most famous for is his kite in a thunderstorm experiment demonstrating electricity found in lightning.  So in this STEAM program we will be performing various static electricity experiments.
We’ll start each program with a game based on the timeline found in the book.
Registration required and space is limited, please call us at 540-425-7000 to sign up.  For Grades K-5.
