Think With Bink

Think With Bink! (Bright, Ideas, Need, Knowledge)

Join Frederick County Public Libraries, the Fort Detrick Alliance, and BINK the Robot for more STEM-related programs led by local scientists. Programs are designed to inspire elementary age children to pursue education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Jim Swearengen, DVM, Board of Directors of the Fort Detrick Alliance, notes, “I feel strongly that these types of interactions are vital in establishing scientific curiosity and the feeling of accomplishment that comes from learning new things that help us understand our world, and will hopefully inspire some of these great young minds to endeavor to make it a better place through science.”
