Today’s Full STEAM Ahead challenge was to create a snowboarder from craft sticks and pipe cleaners. Once all the participants had built and tested their snowboarders, we had them race down the “slope.” Congratulations to our Gold, Silver, and Bronze medalists, and to all the participants.

On January 10 we continued our monthly Literary Legos program with the book Creepy Carrots! by Aaron Reynolds. The kids enjoyed the story of the “creepy” carrots who outsmarted the hungry rabbit. Our winner this month created a giant creepy Lego carrot.
Join us next month on February 7 for the next Literary Legos!
