Black History Month STEM Kits (w/links)!
Looking for something to do during February break? Stop by the center Wednesday, 2/24 from 2-4 PM to pick up a free STEM activity kit!
In honor of Black History Month, these kits include two different activities celebrating NASA mathematicians Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson, three African American women who were integral to America's success during the Space Race. Each kit includes instructions, all materials needed, and links to a read-a-long and additional videos, which will be posted here on 2/24 (be sure to watch these before beginning the activities!).
As always, please wear a mask when picking up kits. Kits are first come, first served. One kit per child, please!
