We are partnering with Entergy Waterford 3 to present a STEM Fair on Tuesday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the East Regional Library.
Many elements of STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math—are scheduled to be on display and available for hands-on experiences for people of all ages, from preschool to adults, throughout the library.
- Volunteers from Entergy Waterford 3 will have activities and demonstrations in conjunction with Nuclear Science Week (October 15-19) for attendees to learn more about energy and nuclear power.
- Earth Science Week (October 14-20) will be celebrated with help from retired science teacher Marie Tizzard. She will encourage students to act like paleontologists by investigating ancient ocean sediments to discover and identify shark teeth, coral, sea shells, and more.
- The award-winning Destrehan and Hahnville High School robotics teams will demonstrate their creations and talk about their work.
- Attendees will be able to put on a virtual reality headset and step into another world.
- An interactive giant bubble area by Jennette Ginsburg of Hey Now Hooping will be outside.
- The St. Charles Parish Library Planetarium will have astronomy-themed activities and information.
- The Friends of the St. Charles Library will host a pop-up book sale.
