Kid’s Innovation Playground is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to bridging the educational gap in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) experiences for children PreK-8th grade in rural western Pennsylvania.
Kid's Innovation Playground is introducing a whole new format this fall! Tech Tinkering! Tech Tutoring! is a FREE program based in two rural northern Butler County libraries, Slippery Rock Community Library and North Trails Public Library. Families with children 4 years old and up can come to the library anytime between 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm,
on Mondays in Slippery Rock, and Wednesdays in
West Sunbury, and explore different types of educational technology. Stay as long or as little as you'd like. Accompanying adult must stay within the library.
The first few weeks we will have two or three types of educational tech available for the kids. As we get settled in, we will be offering opportunities for kids to earn badges. We will also be available to assist kids with adding technology and video production to their school assignments.
We are so thankful to the staff of both libraries for sharing their space with Kid's Innovation Playground and our KiPsters! We would not be able to offer this program if it weren't for the generosity of the Grable Foundation and the Mendel and Sylvia Charitable Trust.
