In February, 2019, we learned about cleaning up polluted water, and built our own filters. Our favorite librarian, Judi Koch, had lots of materials like sand, coconut fiber, and activated carbon to try. Check out our filters here:
We had a great time at the High Plains Library building bridges with grade schoolers in November, 2018! Check out these structures!
