Dayton Metro Library is teaming up once again with the amazing Mister C for six weeks of STEM-Mania! Each Wednesday, Sept 16 - Oct 21, Mister C will live-stream science-based activities and experiments that kids can do at home. Geared toward grades 3 - 5, it's educational and fun for all ages.
Each episode features fun facts and silly science humor. Most of the activities can be completed with common materials found around the house. Two episodes, Electricity and Kitchen Chemistry, will have supply kits available to borrow from the Library the week of the show.
“Mister C’s STEM-Mania gives kids an opportunity to do hands-on science at home,” said Mandie Burns, Dayton Metro Library’s Coordinator of Youth Services. “We’ll provide a supply list for each program, and instructions so families can do the activities on their own. We’ll also have book lists for further exploration on each topic, and information about careers that utilize the science topics Mister C focuses on.”
Mister C is Kevin Cornell, an educator for 18 years. He has been a classroom teacher, principal, curriculum specialist and district administrator. His specialty is knowing how to inspire and engage learners of all ages. He is the Regional Emmy-Nominated host and creator of Full STEAM Ahead, which airs on PBS Kids in Southwest Ohio.
“Mister C is funny, energetic and just as curious about science as kids are,” said Burns.
