STEM – ulating kids’ curiosity

SEA Discovery Center Volunteer and Program Coordinator Lauren Kemper put poster paint on a rubber fish and then stamped its impression on a piece of paper.

“This is a traditional way of identifying and measuring fish … We use rubber fish for the demonstrations, of course, because they don’t spoil,” Kemper said.

Stamp a fish. Balance an eagle on your finger tip. Float a rock. Program a robot car to drive through a maze. Make a battery with pennies and vinegar. Make the Eiffel Tower (or your name) in 3-D with a plastic extrusion pen.

On July 25, all these and more were the activities that folks from Kitsap Regional Library, (WWU's) SEA Discovery Center in Poulsbo, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Puget Sound Navy Museum and the USS Turner Joy brought to the Sylvan Way branch of the Kitsap Regional Library.
