After School and Saturday Programming

 

Lego Club is returning for another year at the Winslow Public Library on October 7. Any student in grades K-12 is welcome to come and build something at the library on Friday afternoons from 2:30-4. Creations are put on display for the entire library community to enjoy for approximately one month. Some weeks will feature building challenges, while other weeks will be entirely devoted to free building. Students may take the bus to the library after school with a note. We hope to see you and your creations soon!

Join Bedtime Math’s Crazy 8s, where you’ll build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess…it’s a totally new kind of math club. You’ll get to do mischief-making activities like Glow-in-the-Dark Geometry, Bouncy Dice and Toilet Paper Olympics. 

This program will take place on Tuesdays from 2:30-4 PM, beginning October 4 and running through November 22. Students may take the bus after school to the library with a bus note. Aimed at grades K-5.

 

Weekly Sessions:

 

Glow in the Dark Geometry: Make geometric shapes using glowsticks. Lay out the sticks to make mystical repeating patterns, and even build a gleaming Egyptian pyramid. Then flick off the lights to see it all glow!

 

Let’s Get Loud: Build a working flute, then play instruments made of random gadgets. After all that, find out exactly how loud you are, down to the numbers!

 

Time of Your Life: Find out what makes you tick. Race to do crazy stunts, “be” a clock, and see if you have the winning birthday!

 

Toilet Paper Olympics: Bet you never knew sports and toilet paper could go together, huh? Get on a roll with your Olympian skills in the shot put, the long jump, and the relay race.

 

Spy Training: See if you have what it takes to be a spy, and break the codes to the clues to find the hidden treasure!

 

Flying Marshmallows: Send marshmallows flying through the air using popsicle sticks and rubber bands. Figure out what positions work best, then measure the flight to prove it.

 

Zip Line Zoo: Build a zip line for brave stuffed animals, and race them across the room. Measure the distance and time their rides to see how fast they can go!

 

Bouncy Dice Explosion: Your big chance to throw things because you’re supposed to. Find out your chances of rolling a 2 or a 5, then try to be the winning chip on a giant human Bingo board.


For all afterschool programs, please make sure your child has a note with the school if they will be getting off the bus here rather than their normal stop. Here is a link to the bus note form. Thanks!
