Second Annual BoilerMAKER Blast STEM Open House

Mar 27 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

South Haven Library - Valparaiso



The Second Annual BoilerMAKER Blast STEM Open House will be held five times during Porter County Schools’ Spring Break, March 25-28. This Open House, sponsored by Porter County 4-H through grant funding provided by Arcelor Mittal, offers participants opportunities to learn more about STEM - the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, while experiencing the newest technology in the field; interactive displays range from the 3-D printer and 3-D pens with a make-and-take activity, to the programmable robots and even drones!

The program is a collaboration of Purdue Extension – Porter County and the Porter County Public Library Systems. Open to the public, each open house will be held at all five libraries within the Porter County Public Library System and run for one hour, serving as an open invite to the public to drop in for as long or little as their schedules allow with night and day time sessions available. Displays include the interactive STEM tools, as well as general information about 4-H clubs and educational opportunities offered by the organization at large. The events are free to attend, and refreshments will be provided by the Porter County 4-H Council.
