STEM and STEAM and Robots – Oh My

steam fair roboticsMost people know that STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. But what about STEAM? STEAM is what you get when you add art to the mix. And if you add robots in too? Then you have STEAM Fair Robotics Expo – now that’s right up my alley.

Danbury Library is having a special STEAM fair in their Hackerspace this May to celebrate individuals in the arts and sciences who focus on robots.The event is being held on May 14th – hope to see you there.

The fair is free and runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hackerspace in the Danbury Library on Main Street.

Gearing up for Springtime

Spring is upon us and I am gearing up for when the Andover Central Park is in full bloom – transformed from the snow-covered greens of recent weeks. On May 7th  I will be in downtown Andover for Crafts in the Park.

Crafts in the Park is an annual event held in Andover, Massachusetts on the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend. The long-range weather forecast looks very promising…but we all know what New England Spring weather is like, so rest assured this event is held rain or shine.

Celebrating their 41st year, this event is hosted by The Christ Church. Proceeds from Crafts in the Park will be used to support their mission and outreach to the local community, including Habitat for Humanity, Esperanza Academy, Bread and Roses, Neighbors in Need, Lazarus House, and the Merrimack Valley Project.

Crafts in the Park is held on May 7th from 10-4pm – so grab your mom and come out to enjoy a fun afternoon for a good cause!
