Library helps to expand STEAM education

RICHLAND,Wash. - Science education is expanding in the Tri-Cities Wednesday.

Part of Richland's Public Library will soon be dedicated to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math education.)

The library foundation donated $100,000 dollars to the project to include new programs featuring agriculture workshops, virtual reality activities, 3D printing, spin pottery and crafts.

The library is now looking to tap the local science and arts communities.

“"In our community so many companies are invested in science and technology. We are looking for instructors, people that are willing to instruct and demo in their area of expertise. You certainly can sign up and demo what you do, show people, teach people something about physics, something about mathematics, something about chemistry," Library Manager, Dr. Leslie Cambell Hime said.

Renovations should be complete next month.

To use the space contact the Richland Public Library or visit their website.
