Nutty Scientists In Libraries

Nutty Scientists Hudson Valley is delighted to extend a hand to libraries in Dutchess, Ulster and Columbia counties to help them build upon their significant efforts to educate our children.  We offer the opportunity to bring STEAM programing right into your library and can cusomtize it to fit your needs.

Our library STEAM programs are theatrical and fun, while offering hands-on activities to encourage active participation in children.  Our curriculum is best suited for ages 4 to 12 years old and can be adapted to suit your audience.

We offer libraries two STEAM programing opportunities – science shows and workshops.
