This week’s STEAM Storytime will feature STEAMy Summer Fun with Squad Art Studio! Kids and their caregivers can explore STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) concepts through a series of interactive, playful experiences focusing on the different states of water. For kids ages 2-5. We design these programs to include activities that develop many skills including early literacy, social-emotional, and motor skills. Practicing these skills now will help your child be successful in school later.

Please register for all dates that you will be attending. This program will occur outside in the library’s Welcome Garden, weather permitting. If it is rainy or too cold, the program will be in the large program room on the lower level.

Computer Animation Camp – Beginner

Join Prof. Chris Wilmer, who teaches scientific visualization at the University of Pittsburgh and is a Fox Chapel area resident, for this fun, week-long half-day summer camp, from 1pm-4pm, July 15th through 19th, 2024. (Recommended ages: 7-11, see chart below)

Students will learn the basics of using Blender to model basic 3d shapes and create animations that can be shared with family. Fun activities will include using physics simulations to animate collapsing buildings and designing (cute) monster characters that students can 3d print and bring home. No prior experience needed, but if you attended past animation camps or have Blender experience, there is a more advanced camp offered the following week (see chart below). Beginner students are welcome to sign up for both classes.

We recommend bringing your own Windows/Mac/Linux laptop and make sure Blender 3.0 or higher is installed before the start of class. You can download it here for free (link).  Please note that iPads and/or Chromebooks will NOT work for this class.

We will have some computers available if you do not have access to a laptop, but these will be limited.
