The Young Gloucester Scientist's Club presents: Vernal Pond Field Trip
Grab you mud boots! This month we're joining Rick Roth and the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team to learn about the inextricable link woodland creatures, such as salamanders and frogs, have to ponds right here in Gloucester. In this hour-long field trip we may see frogs, fairy shrimp, insects, and leeches.

What is the Gloucester Young Scientists Club?

The “Young Gloucester Scientist’s Club” will provide an opportunity to better support the digital, scientific and technological goals we have for our elementary and middle school patrons.  This program will be focused on crafting a multilevel program that supports children both in and outside of the library through continued access to physical collections, materials and programming.  Circulating Kits and library produced Digital Content will provide children with fun learning activities to do at home, as well as monthly 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.
