Pop-up Teen Maker Space

(PLEASE NOTE: The YAC meeting has been cancelled in order to put on this program. Free pizza will still be available for all teens who attend!)

Come one come all to our first ever Pop-up Teen Maker Space!

Are you a creator, inventor, coder, or tinkerer? Come test out some of the new technology that the Library has acquired over the past year! During this program you'll have a chance to code a quick video game in Scratch, make a banana or potato piano, turn yourself into a doorbell, code your friends, make those friends dizzy with our Sphero Robotic balls, AND get an introduction to 3D printing.

Why are we doing this? Library staff want to learn from you - our awesome teens - what kind of tech and tech-related programs you'd be interested in for future planning!

Pizza, snacks, and drinks provided for this free & drop-in teen program open to ages 13-18.

Ages:
Teens 13 to 18
