THANK YOU FOR REGISTERING YOUR CHILD for Readers, Makers, and Shakers: Move Those Spuds! We are looking forward to meeting your child! *** The link/code to Zoom will be shared via email prior to your child's session. *** This 90-minute session is online, with ONLY about 15-20 minutes of book sharing and setting the maker's challenge. Your child will spend most of their time planning, and then making their own unique creations using their hands and materials. *** Our facilitators will be available to answer questions or make suggestions as requested by your child. All Readers, Makers, and Shakers will be encouraged to share their ideas and products at the end of the session so that we can CELEBRATE their work. *** We hope your child will want to join additional Readers, Makers, and Shakers summer programs and other offerings by YoungSTEMs. *** We will see you soon!

Launch your child into summer with hands-on fun! We read a book to set up your child's special STEM maker challenge. They do the rest!

About this event

STEM Focus - Farming, Engineering Processes

Book - No Small Potatoes: Junius G. Groves and His Kingdom in Kansas

STEM inspiration with diverse books, and the fun of having kids use all kinds of materials to solve a special STEM challenge is our idea of summer fun. "Move Those Spuds" is the 2nd of the Readers, Makers, and Shakers 2022 summer programs. And what's more, we mail your child a Maker's Kit to use for the program!

We will use the book "No Small Potatoes: Junius G. Groves and His Kingdom in Kansas," a story about African American farmer Junius G. Groves who was called "The Potato King of the World," as our inspiration. Children will pretend that they are just starting out in farming and need to build their own heavy lifting machine. In each program we honor children's effort, creativity, and celebrate their ability to solve and work through problems. These are traits of STEM stars.

Personal Traits emphasized: hard work, determination, visioning/goal setting
