Discover Science at Your Library



Contact: Karen Wallace
Phone: (828) 524-3600
PRESS RELEASE


April is National Science Month, and libraries in Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties are focusing on the topic with displays, programs, hands-on activities, and more. From workshops on vegetable gardening, animal habitats and building robots, to viewing the stars in a portable planetarium, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) takes center stage during the month of April at all Fontana Regional Library locations.

Libraries are increasingly becoming STEM education centers in their communities, supplementing what children learn in their classrooms and helping the public of all ages experience science first-hand.

As part of the North Carolina Science Festival held throughout the state April 7-23, Macon County Public Library will host an official Festival event focusing on science and technology. On April 20, families and the public of all ages can visit the portable planetarium and participate in hands-on science activities during a Family Science Night.

For a full schedule of all science and technology programs and activities in your library during the month of April, visit www.fontanalib.org or call your local library.

Founded in 2010, the North Carolina Science Festival is the first statewide science festival in the United States. Through a two-week series of community-based events each spring (hosted by schools, colleges, libraries, museums, parks, businesses and other local organizations), the Festival celebrates the economic, educational and cultural impact of science in North Carolina.

“Science is fun, science is everywhere, science is for everyone — that’s what the North Carolina Science Festival is all about,” said Jonathan Frederick, Festival director.

The North Carolina Science Festival is presented by the Biogen Foundation and produced by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For more information, visit www.ncsciencefestival.org.
