A storyboard is a graphic representation of how your book or videogame or movie will unfold, shot by shot. It’s made up of a number of squares with illustrations or pictures representing each shot or page, with notes about what’s going on in the scene and what’s being said in the script during that shot. Think of it as sort of a comic book version of your script.
The library hosts STEAM programs for all ages all year long. STEAM Week highlights the library's STEAM offerings and invites learners of all ages to design, create, test, and innovate with science, technology, engineering, arts, and math! Make simple circuits, code, create games, and enjoy robot storytime. All of STEAM Week’s programs are free and open to the public, including adults, teens, youth, and even pre-schoolers.
