The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library is proud to be one of only eight libraries in the country -- and the only one in Indiana -- to host Discover Tech: Engineers Make a World of Difference. This traveling exhibition will run from February 25 to May 19 at KHCPL South. It will be open to the public whenever KHCPL South is open, which is:

Monday -- Thursday: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Friday and Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Sundays: 2 to 5:30 p.m.

Through hands-on activities and interactive displays, Discover Tech will introduce young audiences to engineering and technology -- both high- and low-tech. The exhibition is designed to spark creativity and imagination in young minds through STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills, which are now considered a crucial part of education.

 

Discover Tech aims to both inspire and explain. Did you ever wonder how engineers think or what role engineering plays in our everyday lives or wish that that some would explain rocket science to the rest of us? Discover Tech has answers to these questions.

There are accompanying resources for adults and educators as well as child just looking to explore the world of science.

As part of the exhibition, KHCPL South will hold a special Discover Tech book discussion on April 20th at 6:30 pm. The featured selection will be Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, which is the true story of the female, African-American mathematicians whom NASA employed as human computers who helped launch the U.S. space program.
