Nutley Public Library is offering a variety of science and technology-based programs for children that can be accessed right from home this summer! 

  • Maker Mondays: Every Monday at 2:00 PM, the Nutley Public Library is posting videos on their website, Facebook page and YouTube channel on different science and DIY activities you can do at home. The first activity was 3-Ingredient Play Dough, with a variety of new activities scheduled throughout the summer. 
  • Techsplorers Club: Saturdays on July 11 and July 25 at 10:00 AM. Students entering grades 3-6 can log on to work on an awesome tech project under the guidance of teacher Jay Levine. July 11 will feature a Marble Run Madness project, and July 25 will present an online puzzle game focused on cryptology (the study of codes). 
  • Ozobot Bot Camp: Monday, July 20 at 2:00 PM. Children of all ages can learn how to "virtually" code Ozobots, fun little robots that can do a variety of things. 
  • STEAM Story Time: Fridays on July 10 and August 7 at 10:30 AM. Younger children can enjoy a virtual story time and then create a basic project focused on a science principle. July 10 is Ice Cream in a Bag, and August 7 is a Simple Catapult. 

Patrons must register at youthservices.nutleypubliclibrary.org for Techsplorers Club, Ozobot Bot Camp and STEAM Story Time to receive the program web link and password to login, as well as instructions/required supply lists. 

Most of the programs will also be available for repeat viewing on the library's Facebook page and YouTube channel
