The Young Gloucester Scientist's Club meets frequently in and around Cape Ann to explore scientific subjects through experiential learning when possible. Hosted by the Sawyer Free Library the club is designed to nurture interest in science in a group setting. Late August's session is a day outing to the Burnham Field Community Garden.

What is the Young Gloucester Scientist's Club:
Supported thorugh MBLC grant funding, The “Young Gloucester Scientist’s Club” is a monthly club for 4th through 8th graders. Circulating Kits and library produced Digital Content will provide children with fun learning activities to do at home, as well as in-person family programming that introduces them to Gloucester Community members with careers across a variety of STEM fields. This program will not only allow for a hands-on approach to learning and build community connections, but it will encourage children to actively think like scientists by observing, questioning and experimenting with the world around them.
