Mathematics Support and Enrichment
Additionally, the library carries a variety of print materials to support math exploration and achievement including the EnVision Math workbooks for Grades K-5. These are the math workbooks currently used by Forest Park School District 91.
3D Printing at the Library
We now offer 3D printing classes and labs for middle graders and young adults. Please check the Calendar of Events for upcoming opportunities. Anyone interested in learning more about what kinds of projects may be possible may want to check out Thingiverse or Tinkercad to see work shared by other creators.
If your child has ever taken something apart to figure out how it works, you might be seeing the signs of a natural tinkerer! Channel this curiosity in a safe way through exploration of the library’s Snap Circuits Motion and 3D Illumination sets. These sets serve as a fun and approachable introduction to electrical engineering. They allow kids to construct workable gadgets and learn circuit construction and design. Snap Circuits can be checked out with a library card or used in-house upon request at the Youth Services desk.
