Event Description

Join us every Wednesday in June for a GREAT DESERT ISLAND Adventure! Through a series of five STEM challenges, you will help a shipwrecked traveler survive and get back to civilization. You are welcome to attend ANY week or ALL weeks. This activity is best suited to gradeschool children and tweens ages 5-12; please sign up INDIVIDUALLY.

Our FIFTH and FINAL challenge will be to get our lonely survivor, Sir Harley Houndstooth III, back home to his family.

Be sure to check out the library's collection of books or databases to learn how and why things float!


This program is designed for children and accompanying adults. Please plan to be in attendance and be engaged with your child for this program.
