Elkins-Randolph County Public Library brings STEM education out of the classroom


Elkins-Randolph County Public Library has been hosting STEM incorporated classes for area youth.

MakerSpace Mondays is a new program at the library for middle school students to take their STEM knowledge out of the classroom. Students will build, design and create structures and models using legos, cardboard and robotics.

“It’s an opportunity for kids to really connect outside of school, to really be able to get together and connect and hopefully build friendships, to be able to put something together and know that collaboratively they were able to accomplish the goal they had in mind,” said MakerSpace Facilitator Juliana Warkentin.

Classes are every other Monday, at the library, following school; students must be registered before attending.
