There will also be a LEGO building challenge on Saturday, Janurary 13th at 2pm. Other STEM programing will also be featured throughout the time of the exhibit being in town.
The exhibit will be free to experience and open to the public during library hours.
Discover Tech was organized by Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning in partnership with the American Library Association’s Public Programs Office, the Lunar and Planetary Institute, and the Afterschool Alliance. The project was made possible through support from the National Science Foundation.
