Activity Centers

SRP 2017 Slogan 4
This summer's theme is "Build a Better World"!  Each week we will feature a different topic offering a variety of activity centers with S.T.R.E.A.M. activities: science, technology, reading, engineering, art, math, and music.  Students can design, build, create, problem solve, paint, and more.  No registration required.  Just drop in during the open hours and make, create, and take.

Test your senses by painting with scratch 'n' sniff watercolors, guessing what-flavor-is-it (using jellybeans), make a kazoo, crate an I-Spy bottle, and guess-what-you're-touching in our mystery box.
