Cane Bay Library Hosting Three Little Pigs STEM Challenge
Berkeley County Library System (BCLS) in collaboration with the Coastal South Carolina Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), invites families with elementary-age students to participate in the Three Little Pigs STEM Challenge on Saturday, April 1st, 2023 from 1 pm to 2 p.m. at Cane Bay Library, located at 1655 Cane Bay Blvd., Ste A., Summerville. Participants may register by visiting the Cane Bay Library or calling 843-719-4796.
Derik Pack, IEEE Member, will read a STEM book, offer a Q&A session about engineering and conduct a STEM activity. Parents are encouraged to participate and/or review a STEM & Cyber Safety packet. Free STEM home-use activity sources will also be shared with families. Pack will lead the students to design a house that will withstand the wolf’s blows (hair dryer) of destruction by using gumdrops, toothpicks and a paper plate to protect the pig. Supplies provided.
“It’s a one-hour family STEM event,” said Derik Pack, Section Chair for the Coastal South Carolina Section of IEEE. “Parents can take part in the STEM activity and/or review a STEM & Cybersafety packet we provide. Kids receive a STEM book reading, a Q&A Session about engineering and a STEM activity that is challenging and entertaining. The STEM activity is geared for elementary-age children as a first STEM event, and I’ve seen children as young as four years old engage and enjoy it.”
