STEAM classes offered...

The Library NExT (Network of Education x Training) program features classes about topics such as robotics, circuits, “messy” science, 3D modeling and college planning. It started as a pilot program in six San Diego libraries in early 2017 and will be expanding to more branches throughout the city. Check out more information about the program and upcoming offerings at https://www.sandiego.gov/librarynext

This project is funded in whole or in part with Community Development BlockGrant (CDBG) Program funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing andUrban Development (HUD) to the City of San Diego.
