Youth Maker Hangout provides a unique space for kids to practice their coding and engineering skills with their peers and volunteer mentors. Now back for the 5th year running, YMH has kicked off with a record turnout and some new technologies to play with including BBC’s micro:bit.
Make your own digital designs and computer programs in a social setting using a variety of tools: Scratch, Bitsbox, BiBli robots, Tinker CAD, Zotebook, Arduino programming, and more. Each weekly session will launch with a short lesson using one type of technology that relates to the month’s theme. Work on monthly challenges or designs of your choice and share your work! Bring a laptop or borrow one from the Library. Volunteers and experts will be on hand to support.
Recommended for youth ages 7-14. Parents are encouraged (not required) to stay and learn coding too!
Generously sponsored by the Boulder Library Foundation.
Youth Maker Hangout meets weekly on most Tuesdays 4-5:30pm during BVSD school year. Check out the Boulder Public Library calendar for updates.
