Some Assembly Required visits MCPL during its 2023 Summer Reading Program entitled “All Together Now,” which promotes community engagement, teamwork and cooperation. Visitors may engage in fun and challenging activities that help foster the development of key social-emotional skills and highlight Build-a-Bear Workshop’s Core Values: achieve, collaborate, celebrate, give, learn, and embrace. Interactive stations throughout the exhibit introduce STEM concepts and encourage children to tinker, invent and solve problems. The exhibit invites children and families to construct a bridge, form a band, plant a community garden and participate in other experiences that feature storytelling, coding/logic, construction activities, mechanical concepts, music, visual communications, design, agricultural sustainability and diversity.
The exhibit, which is locally sponsored by the FMH Foundation, the MCPL Foundation, and the Carnegie Circle, showcases interactive STEM concepts for visitors aged 2 to 10.
