The Ruth Enlow Library will participate in the 2015 Maryland
STEM Festival with official events scheduled at all local libraries in
November. These events are among hundreds of community-based events showcasing
STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities for the
citizens of Maryland.
“Join us for hands-on creation experiences at the library,”
says Children’s Specialist Julie Iden. “Come and explore storytelling and learn
about the science and technology behind stop‐motion. At all locations except
Kitzmiller, students will work in teams to create their own short stop‐motion
films using the Lego Movie Maker app. By the end of the class, each team will
have produced their very own movie complete with dialog and sound effects.”
“The Maryland STEM Festival is about bringing the wonders
and fun of STEM to every Maryland resident,” said Phil Rogofsky, Festival
director. “There will be something for each and every person to be excited
“Founded in 2014, the Maryland STEM Festival joins a growing
trend of regional STEM and science festivals in the United States,” notes a
library spokesperson. “During a 10-day
celebration, the festival will bring over 100 events – hosted by schools,
colleges, libraries, museums, parks, businesses, and other community organizations
– together under one banner to recognize the economic, educational, and
cultural impact of STEM in Maryland.”
