The Grafton Public Library is excited to announce Silly Science Storytime will be facilitated by STEM Beginnings during the January/February session (January 4, 11, &25, and February 1 & 8). It’s never too early to spark our little children’s interest in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. With each class, the children will learn STEM concepts through hands-on activities, engaging stories, music and movement, challenges, and even simple experiments ideal for little hands. Each class will be a fun, learning experience for your little ones!
Silly Science Storytime is a 30 minute program for children ages 3.5-5 years and is held at UniBank (89 Worcester St, Grafton, MA) on the specified Mondays at 10:30 am. Registration is required and limited to 12 participants, while 8 slots are reserved for Grafton residents. Registrants must commit to attending all 5 weeks of the session. To register please call the Children’s Room at the Grafton Public Library at 508-839-4649 xt 1103.
