Set off on an adventure to explore botany, agriculture, and forestation in this annual Spring into STEAM event. Spring into STEAM is the San Diego Public Library’s science-focused program series for 9 - 12-year-old students. Classes are taught by local science experts and organizations to create a truly unique educational experience. Workshops take place both in person and virtually during the months of April and May.
Registration is required for all workshops.
Trash into Treasure: Creating Plastic Landscapes
