The Altadena Library Presents ‘Maker Mondays’ for Teens

Maker Monday for Teens
The Altadena Library District is proud to kick off Maker Mondays, a new series of STEAM programs. The series starts on Monday, January 9, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Teen Space.

Participants will create catapults out of popsicle sticks and rubber bands. The newly created catapults will be tested to see who can shoot a marshmallow higher and further. Participants will explore the impact of different structures and angles on the trajectory of their marshmallow. The winner earns a prize for his/her efforts. Snacks will be provided.

“STEAM activities are a great way to explore scientific theories through cause and effect,” says Kate Shumaker, Teen Librarian.

The series will continue the second Monday of every month with a different project each meeting.
