STEAM: Sailboat Make & Take Program

Are you worried you won't have enough to do over the school break? Or, perhaps you wish you could make something special for a loved one and don't know where to start? Why not try your hand at designing and building a sailboat? 

Pick up a kit from the Main Library on December 16th or 17th and get building. We will supply the basic materials to get you started but what you do from there is up to you! However, the end result will be the same: a new toy to play with or gift to a loved one!

This program is best suited for ages 9-12 but younger children may be able to build it caregiver assistance.
