Electronics Lab: Raspberry Pi

Build your electronics skills in the Secret Lab!

This week we will take a look at how to use the Raspberry Pi 3 microcontroller. You are also invited to bring in an in-progress electronics project if you want a place to work on it. Soldering irons, multimeters, and an oscilloscope will be available for use!

Electronics Lab: Ham Radio License Workshop and Exam

Want to get your ham radio license?

This full day workshop will teach you everything needed to get your ham radio license, and you can take the exam to get your license at the end!

There is no charge for this event, which will be led by ham radio expert Dan Romanchik.

Owl Mania!

Whoo whoo whoo! Have you ever seen an owl or heard one calling at night?

Owls are amazing creatures—come learn about them at the library! Educators from Leslie Science and Nature Center will bring live owls to the library to show off and you'll learn about how owls fly, hunt, and care for their young.Then, you'll have the chance to dissect owl pellets to figure out what the owl who produced that pellet might have eaten recently!

Fall Leaf Creatures

We'll go on a short walk to gather fall leaves and then create adorable leaf creatures on construction paper!

Meet at the Traverwood program room to head out for leaf gathering.

Sensation Stations

Drop in for sensory fun!

Young children can engage their senses by scooping, pouring, shaking, and sorting a variety of materials, and will learn about colors, shapes, textures, and sounds!

Science Fun with FEMMES

The University of Michigan student group FEMMES (Females Excelling More in Math, Engineering and Science) will bring a variety of hands-on, engaging activities for young students interested in learning more about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) topics.

During this event, common household items will be used to demonstrate experiments in ways such as making licorice DNA, sorting rocks, and playing hospital simulation games to learn about biology, geology, industrial engineering, and much more.

FEMMES is a group of undergraduate and graduate students who are studying various areas in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and who want to encourage younger girls who might be interested in one day doing the same.
