ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - The Dougherty County Library is helping kids strengthen their skills in problem-solving.

Southside Branch Library hosted the final Lego Stem Day event for this month.

This event is supposed to help kids challenge their problem-solving skills by building different structures with Legos.

“It’s a STEM activity so we’re focusing on the science, technology, engineering and mathematical aspect of it, not so much the technology, more on the other,” said Christina Shepherd, Assistant Director at the Dougherty said. “So each day, they’re set up. Each Library will have the Legos set out and there’s usually a challenge associated with it.”

Shepherd said the event was created in an effort to improve kids’ test scores.

“So, we do have books that will help show how to do some of the creative tasks that we have but then we also have the hands-on experience, so that they can do them as well,” Shepherd said.

According to Shepherd, next month’s STEM events will be cup stacking challenges.
