LEXINGTON Ky. (FOX 56) – Local kids who see themselves as engineers, graphic designers, or broadcasters in the future could potentially get their start in a new resource.
The Kloiber Foundation STEAM lab will open at the Lexington Public Library on April 5. Everything from a 3D printer, audio recording booth, and smartboard are available for kids to use.
The STEAM Lab is an experiential learning space for topics related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics designed for youth.
Thanks to the Kloiber Foundation, the lab is free to use at no cost to kids or parents.
“Last week, we had a whole slew of steam break programs for kids that ranged from everything to build your own lightsaber to an egg drop to studying onion cells. This is a brand new space, we’re really excited about all of the different programs that we’ll be able to offer here,” said Lexington Public Library director of development, marketing, and communications Anne Donworth.
