Join us for our first ever STEM Storytime!
In our efforts to support literacy of all kinds in Katy's youth, we're kicking off this program to encourage young readers to also explore science, technology, engineering, and math. Because these Storytimes require specific supplies, we require registration for attendance so we know how many we're expecting, and sadly will have to cap the attendees to ensure everyone can get any assistance they need.
This particular event will be limited to 30. Please call 281-578-7770 to register.
At this event, our activity will be making geometric shapes out of glow sticks and styrofoam balls. This activity is best suited for children ages 3 through 6, although we are not excluding any ages.
Laura Overdeck wants to start a revolution—in the way we introduce math to children.
Our mission: to make math a fun part of kids' everyday lives.
We all know it's wonderful to read bedtime stories to kids, but what about doing math? Many generations of Americans are uncomfortable with math and numbers, and too often we hear the phrase, "I'm just not good at math!" For decades, this attitude has trickled down from parents to their kids, and we now have a culture that finds math dry, intimidating, and just not cool.
Bedtime Math wants to change all that. Inside this book, families will find fun, mischief-making math problems to tackle--math that isn't just kid-friendly, but actually kid-appealing. With over 100 math riddles on topics from jalapeños and submarines to roller coasters and flamingos, this book bursts with math that looks nothing like school. And with three different levels of challenge (wee ones, little kids, and big kids), there's something for everyone. We can make numbers fun, and change the world, one Bedtime Math puzzle at a time.
