More than a dozen young children were at Myersville Community Library on Wednesday to experiment with using plastic interconnecting parts to build.
Robin Goetz, who leads the Tiny STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program, says it helps children “develop critical thinking skills through experimenting.” The children are between the ages of 1 and 5.
Chelsea Pratt, mother of 3-year-old Violet Pratt, said that she is a “big believer in social and cognitive learning through play” and that the Tiny STEM program gives kids the opportunity to learn before they start school.
The Frederick County Public Library system, which includes nine branches, has many programs geared to preschool and school-age children.
