School Holidays – STEM Punks

Toowoomba Region Libraries is partnering with STEM Punks to deliver Drone Coding: Search and Rescue sessions in the first week of the September school holidays. In this immersive STEM program, children will discover how drones can be programmed to solve autonomous tasks and explore the physics of multi-rotor flight. They will also look at how the drones operate, and the system components that make up the drone. The combined learnings of the day will see children apply the skills of coding and drone flight to complete a Drone Search and Rescue Mission.

These sessions will be run in all 11 Toowoomba Region Libraries, please contact your local branch, or view the Events calendar for more information. The Drone Coding: Search and Rescue program is supported by an Advance Queensland Engaging Science Grant provided by the Queensland Government.

First 5 Forever: Baby Rhyme Time and Story Time 

Babies and young children learn best by listening and interacting with the important adults in their lives during everyday activities – whether that’s talking about what you can see on the way to the park, singing nursery rhymes, pointing out something you both view out the window or learning new words while shopping for groceries. Free Baby Time and Story Time sessions are now being run at various locations throughout Toowoomba. First 5 Forever is an initiative of the Queensland Government and the State Library of Queensland.
