Perot Museum TECH Truck Comes to Celina Public Library

We Are Celina!

CELINA Magazine is the only publication that distributes 10,000+ copies to households and businesses in Celina and surrounding areas. CELINA Magazine caters to its educated, family oriented, high net worth readers who have a passion for living well. Each issue focuses on Health, Education, Lifestyle, Community Events and businesses, making it the premiere publication in the Celina area.

The inspiration and innovation of the Perot Museum goes far beyond our walls. We’ll bring the science to you with our TECH trucks and in-school programs, so you can learn in your own school or neighborhood.

The TECH Truck will be visiting the Celina Public Library TOMORROW, July 13th from 10:30am – 12:30pm. This special, FREE event is held in conjunction with the “Libraries Rock” Summer Reading Program. While there tomorrow, please be sure to sign up for the program to earn prizes for reading all summer long!!

How it Works:
The TECH Truck is a mobile extension of the Perot Museum that travels throughout North and Central Texas (within 60 miles of the Museum). The TECH Truck is outfitted with all the materials and technologies needed for each destination. Programming is developed by expert educators from the Perot Museum. Activities are developed for the third grade level and higher.

TECH Truck experiences may include:
– Getting creative and innovative with basic materials
– Solving design challenges
– Utilizing technology to solve problems
– Exploring 3D printing, laser cutters and other technologies
– Using tools and supplies to create and connect
– Programs formats

  • Walk-up activities that range from 10-20 minute experiences designed for family festivals and community programs
  • One-time drop-in sessions for creative, scientific and maker-based activities ranging from 30-60 minute experiences

Workshops for higher-level topics like 3D printing, design, and coding ranging from 2-3 hour experiences

Why it Works:
Hands-on experience with STEAM topics gives kids the confidence to keep exploring. On-site activities introduce technology and digital literacy in accessible ways and
take-home activities encourage parents and caregivers to keep their children’s curiosity alive.

We’re always learning, too — conducting ongoing research and adjusting our topics, methodologies and technologies to deliver the greatest impact!

For all of the details of tomorrow’s event, please follow the Celina Public Library’s event page!!

TECH Truck
The goal of the TECH Truck is to engage youth in hands-on, maker-based science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) experiences that foster creativity and confidence. The TECH Truck brings hands-on discovery directly to community centers programs, libraries, parks, public events, out of school programs, and more — providing science-based experiences for the public.
