The Huntley Area Public Library, in cooperation with Huntley Unit District 158, is bringing a free hands-on science experience to Huntley on Thursday, Aug. 4.

Geared for families of kids in kindergarten to sixth grade, Mobile Ed Productions brings this comprehensive, hands-on children's museum focused on STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, art and math) to the Huntley area.

Attendees will visit workstations to augment their existing science and math curriculum, but they will also expose students to high-tech fields of study they never before had access to. In addition, Mobile Ed promises to put the A in STEAM by opening up kids right-brains through activities that encourage divergent thinking.

Explore a variety of subjects including 3-D printing, computer programming, robotics, structures, gravity, friction, team building, gear ratios and many more

It will take place inside the Chesak Elementary School gym, 10910 Reed Road in Lake in the Hills.

Free tickets are available at the library's children's room desk, while supplies last, for the following sessions: 1:15 to 2 p.m., 2:15 to 3 p.m., 3 to 3:45 p.m., 4 to 4:45 p.m., 4:45 to 5:30 p.m., 6 to 6:45 p.m., 6:45 to 7:30 p.m.
