15-Minute Family STEAM Activity: DIY Water Wheel

DIY Water Wheel

This experiment is geared toward families with kids ages 3 & up. Hydropower is truly a marvel of human engineering.  With the right equipment, people are able to harness the energy generated by water's moving force & use it to power the cities we live in.  It's one of the cleanest forms of energy & you can experiment with it! 

Registration for materials is required for each experiment you would like to try, limited quantities are available and will be reserved for those who have registered. Once your registration has been confirmed, library staff will work with participants to set up a time to pick up their activity kit. STEAM kits can be picked up at the library Monday-Saturday during the week the activity is featured. 

To register for a materials kit, please email attleborokids@sailsinc.org or call 508-222-7820 during the week of Sept 27. The last day to register and schedule a pick up time for these materials will be Friday Oct 1.

A tutorial for this activity will be posted on the Attleboro Public Library YouTube page.  You can also find written instructions under the Children's tab on the main page.

Once your registration has been confirmed, library staff will work with participants to set up a time to pick up their craft kit.

Big Read: The History and Influence Native American Music on America and the World
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Long before there was Rock, Jazz, and Blues, there was a sound so deeply embedded into the soil that only the First Nations people knew how to release it. Together, this vast group of many nations would honor this earthly and spiritual energy of music. With music, they would celebrate the many joys in life that the Creator gave them. Join us as we explore the uniquely Native roots of today’s American music and learn about the instruments, songs, and musical traditions of Indigenous Americans.
