Full STEAM Ahead @ TFL
(formerly TREP - Tully Regional Enrichment Program)
TREP was a grant-funded program housed at Tully Elementary School that provided free enrichment programs for children and families in the Tully area.
TREP is being renamed Full STEAM Ahead @ TFL and is currently transitioning to a program conducted by the Tully Free Library. We are excited at this opportunity to expand enrichment opportunities in our community!
Classes will meet at the Tully Free Library. More students will benefit as homeschooled children and children near Tully (Fabius, Pompey, etc.) are welcome to join.
In addition to classes, Full STEAM Ahead @ TFL also sponsors free special events and field trips for families. We will expand destinations beyond previous field trips to The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester and The Wild Animal Park in Chittenango. Full STEAM Ahead @ TFL will also be sponsoring Cornell Summer Science Snapshot - a special two-day program at Cornell University for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.

Please see below for Fall 2017 classes for PreK-12th grades. Classes start October 2. Registration is required and space is limited. This is a ten-week program. It is advised that participants bring a snack to eat before we start, and that participants attend every class so they will not miss key elements of the program. These programs will take place at Tully Free Library. At the end of the ten weeks we will be holding an open house for families and the community to see the accomplishments of the participants during our ten weeks together.

Teen Talk: Current Events and Fake News

Should you believe everything you read on the Internet? What’s real and what’s fake news and how do you tell the difference?
