SLICE: STEM at the Library

October 15, 2019, 3:00 PM5:00 PM


SLICE (students learning innovative creative endeavors) is a pilot provides young adults with unique experiences to learn more about career paths in the creative arts. Students ages 13-19 explore the behind-the-scenes operations at an historic opera house, an award-winning public library, a vibrant community art studio and education space, a nationally recognized art museum, a local music center, and an independent arthouse cinema. partnering with arts professionals throughout the city, each afternoon will be filled with interesting programming, inspiration, and pizza.

We often think of STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math) as separate from the arts, but the truth is that art can play an important role in STEM! Maine State Library’s STEM librarian, Chris Dorman, will visit to lead an exciting STEM activity with robots! Students will have an opportunity to interact and create with robots Dash, Dot, and Que!

After the activity, students will have the opportunity to explore the library and learn more about careers in library science.

Free and open to students ages 13-19. Pre-Registration Required. Pizza Provided.

Location: Bartlett Room for Teens, Waterville Public Library.
