Leap into Science

Take a Leap into Science!

Explore new STEAM topics each month in these hands-on programs for school age children. Held one Saturday each month. Leap into Science is an interactive program that focuses on various STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) topics. Join educator Ben Olewiler to ask and answer questions like scientists do. Families work together to learn scientific information from books, make observations and predictions, and then conduct science experiments to investigate answers.

“Programs that offer STEAM education build connections between the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. Our STEAM programs at York County Libraries are more than just tinkering. By participating in STEAM programs like Leap into Science, children are engaging in hands-on experimentation and working together with other children through the scientific process. Children enhance critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, and collaboration skills, which are important to their education and life beyond school. Programs like Leap into Science are fun and play a major role in fostering a lifelong pursuit of creativity and curiosity, and a community of thinkers.”
