A steady flow of young people filled Camp STREAM at the Marysville Library.

The afternoon camp ran from July 30-Aug. 3 and focused on STREAM concepts (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math).

From 20-50 participants a day got their hands-on projects that used electricity, sound, mechanics, aerodynamics and other STREAM concepts. Marysville Librarian Brad Jones and staff member Amanda Albert helped the mostly younger school-age campers build and experiment with items such as motorized art bots, flying fish, stomp rockets, rubber-band and electric cars, drums and moose calls made with the fingers of rubber gloves.

The program is part of Sno-Isle Libraries’ Explore Summer “Build a Better World” series that has programs at all 22 of Sno-Isle Libraries’ community libraries. Funding for Camp STREAM was provided by Friends of the Marysville Library.
