STEM Mystery Bag Challenge on Zoom
For elementary-aged kids. What will be in your mystery bag? Using recyclables, odds & ends, scissors, and tape (all supplies provided), build something to solve the design challenge posed on a card in your bag. Each bag has a different challenge. Then, share your challenge and show and tell us about what you engineered to solve it on Zoom! Program limited to 16 kids (adults are welcome to attend alongside them!) Please register at mynpl.org/events and pick up your mystery bag at the children’s desk sometime between April 12 and April 20. This will give you time to construct your solution before the April 24 program!
