Easton Library to Host S.T.E.A.M. Festival


On Saturday, November 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library invites one and all to attend a S.T.E.A.M. Festival in celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.  The Maryland Department of Natural Resources will be on hand with their ever-popular Scales and Tales exhibit, featuring live, non-releasable birds of prey and reptiles.  Past stars have included a Great Horned Owl and an American Kestrel.

Google Expeditions will make it possible for patrons to take a hands-on Virtual Reality trip to exciting, exotic locales … without ever leaving the safety of the Talbot County Free Library.

Patrons visiting the FutureMakers Light Painting Lab (taking place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) will create brushes that paint with light.  With these brushes they will, in turn, “paint” long exposure photographs that capture light, color, and motion.  Participants will be able to take both their brushes and the photographs they create home with them.

The festival will also feature music, light refreshments, and more!  The library’s STEAM Festival marks the concluding event of the weeklong Maryland STEM Festival (more information at: https://marylandstemfestival.org/).

All library programs are free and open to the public.  Patrons do not need to pre-register to attend the library STEAM Festival.  For more information, please contact the library at 410-822-1626, or visit www.tcfl.org.
