Set your sights on science! Arizona SciTech Festival runs through the months of February and March, and comes to Chandler February 20-21.

Want to learn more about science and technology? How about some hands-on experience? Come to the library’s Vertex programs: a new series of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) events. Many of our Vertex programs are geared to kids, including Create-Play-Learn, LEGO club, Minecraft, and Girls Who Code. Grownups can get in on the Maker Space action, too, with 3D printing programs and groups for knitting and other textile arts.
You can also learn at home! Our Science in Context database covers a wide range of science and technology topics, including articles from journals, newspapers, reference books, and more. Read about featured topics like space exploration and extreme weather, or search for your own subject. Or choose Zinio to browse full-page issues of magazines like Science, Discover, and Popular Mechanics. It’s all free with your library card and PIN numbers!
