STEM Club in a Box: Moon Landing 50, The Brain & STEM Fun at Sefton Park Library!
Local children packed the learning zone to discover more about the brain with Dr Valentina Berrera, celebrate 50 years since the moon landing alongside Dr Susha Parameswaran & enjoy free, family-friendly, fun activities!
The concept of STEM Club in a Box is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a STEM-fest treasure chest! Libraries who receive a box can run their club totally independently, whenever they like and like us, they can also enlist the help of expert STEM Ambassadors to enrich their sessions and inspire all.
The box is packed with ideas, resources and fun activities to bring Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths to life!
In her Sefton Park session, Dr Susha introduced the children to the phases of the moon & why they happen. Everyone made their own moon book to hang by their beds at night to check the moon before they go to sleep.
“I love my book. We all thought waxing, waning & gibbous were funny words about the moon!”
Next, our amazing STEM ambassador, Dr Valentina Berrera, introduced the group to ‘the human body’ and then revealed all about the brain!
“We found out how the brain controls the body, brainwaves, nerves and how much the brain can do. Is this happening every week?”
It was fantastic to hear the children were looking forward to the next session and to see so many families enjoying the library. There were plenty of human body & space books checked out as the session ended too!
Thank you to Liverpool Green Party who organised & championed this event.
Sefton Park Library has so much to offer, ask your local library if they have a STEM Club in a box and get involved!
