The Long Beach Public Library has announced “CurioCity: STEAM and Beyond!,'' a free in-person series of programs specifically for youth ages 12 and up who are interested in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.
The STEAM series will cover topics such as interactive electronics and modular synthesizers. Topics will change every two weeks beginning in October at the Studio Makerspace at the Billie Jean King Main Library at 200 W. Broadway.
In a statement, Mayor Robert Garcia said “Long Beach is a hub of technology and innovation. We are excited that the library is offering this type of unique programming designed to engage our community and especially our youth in these subjects.''
Each topic will be introduced in a two-hour lecture by a local expert in the field every other Saturday at 2 p.m., followed by two weeks of programming hosted by Studio staff from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays and 4 to 5:30 p.m. Thursdays. The first block starts on Oct. 2 and will focus on drones. Sounds amazing, right?
COVID protocols will be followed, such as mask requirmements, and space will be limited to maintain social distancing. Space will be first-come, first-served.
More information on the program is available through Long Beach Public Library Makerspace at email@example.com, online at lbpl.org or by calling 562-570-7500.
