STEAMcraft is back at the Santa Barbara Central Library! Located in the Island Room in the new Children’s Library, STEAMcraft (STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) provides an opportunity for children to engage in hands-on learning of various math and technology topics as they explore, create, and play. STEAMcraft will be offered every Friday between July 1 and August 5, from 3:30 – 5 p.m. at the Central Library, located at 40 E. Anapamu Street.
Our six-week session of STEAMcraft will focus on the creation of digital content. We will progress through different topics including:
Weeks 1 & 2 (7/1 & 7/8) – Scratch coding
Week 3 (7/15) – Designing and building objects using a 3D printer
Week 4 (7/22) – Creating improvisational acting scenes
Weeks 5 & 6 (7/29 & 8/5) – Filming, and editing digital videos using green screens and video editing software
Participants are encouraged to attend all 6 classes in order to build on what they’ve learned previously, although each week will provide an introduction to the topic for new attendees. No pre-registration is required, and all materials will be provided. STEAMcraft is best-suited to children ages 8 to 13 years old.
