SML Make & Go Presents Snap Circuits Spin Art Feb. 5 - Feb. 27

Snap Circuits  Spin Art

Shreve Memorial Library’s mobile makerspace, the Make & Go, continues to bring STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) learning to library branches throughout Caddo Parish.  In February, the Make & Go team will introduce children and teens to the world of engineering and technology using Snap Circuits.

Snap Circuits, an ELENCO product, teaches basic engineering, electronics and circuitry concepts by using building components with snaps to assemble electronic circuits as a simple “rows-and-columns” base grid. The finished projects function like the printed circuit board found in most electronic products.

Throughout the month of February, the SML Make & Go team will visit Shreve Memorial Library branches to offer Snap Circuit workshops to children and teens. Participants will use Snap Circuits to build a simple machine and create a piece of spin art using the Snap Circuits machine they built. The workshops are open to children and teens age 8 and older. All workshops are free and open to the public, and all supplies will be provided. Workshops are scheduled as follows:

  • Wednesday, February 5 at 4:00 p.m. at the Cedar Grove/Line Avenue Branch, 8303 Line Avenue
  • Monday, February 10 at 3:45 p.m. at the Hosston Branch, 15478 US Hwy 71, Hosston
  • Wednesday, February 13 at 3:30 p.m. at the North Caddo Branch, 615 North Pine Street, Vivian
  • Tuesday, February 18 at 4:00 p.m. at the Broadmoor Branch, 1212 Captain Shreve Drive
  • Friday, February 21 at 4:00 p.m. at the Wallette Branch, 363 Hearne Avenue

  • Thursday, February 27 at 4:30 p.m. at the David Raines Branch, 2855 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive

Shreve Memorial Library’s Make & Go is a fully equipped makerspace on wheels bringing the latest in STEAM programming to communities throughout Caddo Parish. The Make & Go provides STEAM programming on the go, traveling to outreach events, the library’s 21 branches, SPAR Recreation Centers, and more. Materials for use with the Make & Go include laptops, iPads, 3D printer and scanner, robotics, building sets, portable hotspots, arts and crafts supplies, SNAP circuits, and sewing and embroidery tools. The Make & Go is customizable to meet STEAM learning needs.
