Though our doors have been closed, we have switched gears with our programming here at Bekkum Memorial Library. Through our two-year grant with PBS Wisconsin, weve already hosted two online STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning sessions, and hope to continue the format throughout the summer (or until our doors re-open).

The program is focused on ages 4 through 8, and families are encouraged to take part in the hour-and-a-half sessions filled with discovery and fun. In our April session, participants discovered fantastic bridges and what it takes to build them. They then built their own bridges out of simple materials in their own homes and shared their creations with the group. Our May session focused on ramps, friction and motion with Cat in the Hat and more great investigation and giggles! Follow us on Facebook @bekkumlibrary or our website wrlsweb.org/westby/ for further updates on more fun PBS virtual learning programs.
