STEAM Festival

Greater Dandenong Libraries invites you to attend the third annual STEAM Festival this August.

The STEAM Festival returns in an online format this year to celebrate all things STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.

It’s sure to be a busy month of online events and programs. There’s plenty to get children interested and be sure to book yourself into adult programs too.

This year, the STEAM Festival includes online library sponsored Melbourne Writers’ Festival events between 7–16 August, and events celebrating National Science Week between 15–23 August.

For more information, please phone 1300 630 920 or see library staff.
