The below blog post was written by Lia, a Make Do Share Intern at our Bainbridge Island location. Make Do Share internships are supported by a grant through the Institute of Museum and Library Services and provide teens and young adults (ages 16-25) with the opportunity to gain real world job experience while developing 21st century skills. They also help to make the Library's youth STEM programs more awesome.
If you know a teen or young adult (age 16-25) in Kitsap County who wants to share their interests, learning and passion to work with youth in their community, please share with them the following announcement.
Summer is a time of sun and fun. With so many of us looking for ways to stay active and engaged in Kitsap County, I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of the almost endless parks and hiking trails that our amazing county has to offer. Whether you’re in South, Central or North Kitsap, there are city, county and state parks offering all kinds of activities.
This summer will be loaded with fun STEM programming and activities at each of the Kitsap Regional Library branches. STEM topics and careers are such an important part of our future. Kitsap County is full of amazing and resourceful STEM professionals. In this blog, we asked some questions to local scientist Karen Hecht, about her career in STEM.
