As the Teen Republic is designed for teens, we may show PG-13 films. Since that designation is so broad it’s up to guardians and kiddos to decide if any given film is appropriate.
Movies are shown Mondays at 5pm and Saturdays at 1pm.

“Design Your Own Space Vehicle” with Dr. Anne Spence, Clinical Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering
We will explore the history of flight and discus how some of those aircrafts were designed and how they may need to be different for flight on other planets. After discovering the characteristics that make up an aerial vehicle, we will design our own aerial vehicle for another planet. Other hands-on activities will help participants understand how air flows over different shapes and how that impacts design.
Join us on the first Thursday on the month to talk to our staff about books, movies, games, programing, and more! This is your chance to let your voice be heard, and have us put it into action!
On the fourth Thursday of the month, our staff will put your plan into action! Stay tuned for details!
March 1 & 22, April 5 & 26, and May 3 & 24 at 5pm in the Teen Republic.

Then be sure to join us and your fellow book-lovers on the second Thursday each month at 6pm in the Teen Republic!

The tech field is ever growing, but how do you get the skills needed to succeed? Learning the basics of coding, and then coding a project of your own design sounds like a good place to start, right?
This event is for Teen Republic patrons (grades 6-12), free of charge, and (despite the name) is for all kiddos, not just girls!
