Discovery Mobile Offers STEAM Story Time

Monday, July 21, 2014

The Creative Discovery Museum’s Discovery Mobile is partnering with the Chattanooga Southside Library for a special story time that includes STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities for young children on Thursday, July 24 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

The Discovery Mobile has been combining STEAM activities with literacy this summer at the Southside Chattanooga Library on Thursday mornings for the last several weeks. After parents and children enjoy their regular story time inside the library they can come to the Mobile parked just outside the doors for fun STEAM activities based around the story they just heard.

“For optimal brain development, young children need lots of time to explore a variety of materials,” said Jenette Dean, Early Childhood Manager at Creative Discovery Museum. “The fun, open-ended early childhood explorations provided on the Mobile build great foundations for learning about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math as your child grows older.”

The next STEAM activity planned for July 24 will be themed around "Ponds." Children will explore water tables with lots of different materials. They will also be invited to create a pond habitat model to take home and explore natural pond items with a special preschool handheld microscope.

F*** you, Florida!” It was shocking, a loud and vulgar display of all that sportsmanship isn’t, and served as a great embarrassment to Knoxville and the university. Jimmy Cheek, ... (click for more)
