The Newton Free Library, in partnership with the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club and NewtonSTEM, will host Think Big at the Library on March 3, 2PM-4PM. It’s a free event for students in Grades 6-12 to meet and talk in small groups with 10-20 professionals in a variety of STEM careers such as software engineering, medical research and practice, nano-structural manufacturing, life-sciences venture capital, architecture, and chemistry. Find out what they do, how they got there, and what STEM opportunities might be a good fit for you. Cabot’s Ice Cream will provide refreshments, and the LigerBots will assist and be available for students to learn about their robotics club. Space is limited, and registration is required.
The Library, Boys & Girls Club, and NewtonSTEM hosted a similar event for girls two years ago. This year’s event is open to all genders. To maximize capacity for students, adults will not be admitted.
