(Sheridan, Wyo) – The “Tween Challenge Takeover”, a club for kids in 5th through 7th grades, just turned one year old. The program has been a great success for the Sheridan Children’s Library.
The Tween Challenge Takeover was created to address the lack of programming and materials available for kids who are too old for story-time but aren’t yet teens. The “tween” years are a fleeting age with very specific social and educational needs.
Club activities aim to engage children’s creativity through science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. Some of the more popular sessions include stop-motion animation, food science, and improvisational acting.
The club meets on Tuesdays at 3:45 in the Children’s Theater at Sheridan Children’s Library. The last session of the March/April schedule takes place on April 26th and will explore screenwriting. The May/June schedule will be announced at that time.
