Fort Campbell, Clarksville, and the surrounding area has always been known for its family-friendly atmosphere. Whether you’re looking for an educational adventure or an arts and crats activity, you’ll find some truly unique options on the local calendar. Resolve to get out in Clarksville and have some fun this year! Here are some of our favorite things to do to start off 2018.


STEM Night at the RF Sink Memorial Library

January 9th 2018 (and ongoing throughout the year on the second Tuesday of every month)

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM is based on educating students in these four specific disciplines in a more interdisciplinary approach. Instead of teaching these four topics as separate subjects, the STEM approach integrates and presents them in a cohesive and real-world based application.

Historically the United States has been a leader in all of these fields, but there have been fewer students interested in these topics in recent years. STEM makes them more accessible and enjoyable. STEM Night is open to the entire family.

The RF Sink Memorial Library is located at:
38 Screaming Eagle Blvd, Fort Campbell, KY 42223
Call the Library for the specific STEM topic.  270.798.5729
