Children ages 6 through 12 can learn about shadows and create shadow puppets at the Nicholson Memorial Library System’s Books and Beyond program. The event takes place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 17, at the Central Library.
Books and Beyond consists of book discussions and activities related to monthly themes. Each theme incorporates concepts from STEAM learning: science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Children use their imaginations to explore the themes and complete the activities, all while socializing with others their age and having fun.
Participants at the February program will learn about how shadows are created and use their STEAM science skills to test different objects of varying degrees of transparency to see if they cast shadows. Attendees may also create shadow puppets and shadow, or silhouette, drawings.
No registration is required to attend this free event. Children must be ages 6 through 12 to attend.
