Preschool Science Fair

The Craftsbury Public Library will hold a Preschool Science Fair on Saturday, November 12. The fair will feature activities to explore physical sciences. Stations will be set up to provide fun activities that support each skill, as well as information for parents, grandparents, and caregivers on how to help children develop these skills.
Activities will include building a marble run, playing with ramps and friction, building a toothpick structure, a sink and float experiment, and a sorting station. Special events throughout the day will include a musical rhythm activity led by music teacher Madeleine Berner, and a gravity themed story time and activity. The library will give a free book to every child who comes to the Literacy Fair.
The Preschool Science Fair grew out of the information and trainings provided by the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), a collaborative project of the Vermont Department of Libraries and Mother Goose Programs. Children's Librarian Jen McKenzie has received training on infant and childhood development and ways to incorporate STEM activities into story hours as well as daily routines. The Preschool Science Fair is one opportunity to share these ideas and information with the wider community.
The fair will run from 1:00-4:00PM and families can drop in at any time and stay for as long as is convenient. The ideas presented at the fair will be most appropriate for young children aged 3-7, but everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, contact the library at 586-9683.
