Visitors will enjoy hands-on activities like easy-to-program rolling robots called Bee Bots, Cubelets, which show a fast and easy way to learn while building robots, and a green screen for interactive photo opportunities.

“Technology is such a big part of our everyday lives,” said Orinda  Library Manager Sierra Campagna. “The demonstrations and activities we have planned will help people experience new technologies and show kids what they can create with a little imagination.”

This year the Contra Costa County Library is celebrating a Year of STEAM. Events at all 26 library locations across the county are focused on engaging students and library visitors in new, fun activities designed to introduce them to science, technology, engineering, art and math.

This event is the second of three Exploration Stations at library branches around the county. Each has a different theme. The first Exploration Station took place at the Pittsburg Library in September and focused on life science.
