Explore STEAM This Summer—For FREE!



Thinkery is partnering with Austin Public Libraries to provide programming for their Tween STEAM summer reading program. | Thinkery está colaborando con las bibliotecas públicas de Austin para ofrecer éste verano el programa Tween STEAM de lectura.

It’s back! This summer, Thinkery is expanding our EdExchange professional development program into several branches of the Austin Public Library system. The collaboration—a free summertime program, Tween STEAM—is an exploration of science, technology, engineering, art and math for local youth ages 8–12.

From programming to digital storytelling to paper circuits, each 90-minute Tween STEAM session engages pre-teens and tweens in STEAM topics.

We’re beyond thrilled to continue this collaboration with Austin Public Library and bring free STEAM programming to our community this summer. Tween STEAM runs through August 2—find a free program near you!
