Kids have hit off the New Year testing their skills with some fun and challenging holiday activities at the City Library.
Local children yesterday had to build a way to ensure eggs remained intact when dropped, with an array of creative materials at their disposal.
The library’s Fallon Spangler said they were pushing more engaging STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) activities for children over the school holidays.
“This gets their fine motor skills happening, critical thinking and team work going,” she said.
Ms Spangler said that it breaks a reliance on digital entertainment for children and brings in children that don’t often come to the library. Participant Ethan Phillips came along with his dad and sister and was happy with his egg-drop creation.
“It’s really good. I really like that we get to build things.”
