Summer 2018 at Long Beach Public Library
In the Summer of 2018, novice makers ages 10 to 16 are invited to build, tinker and explore with us for four weeks beginning July 7th - August 2nd. Every week at the Main Library, the Michelle Obama Library and the Mark Twain Library campers will be engaged in design/tech-centered activities that inspire and educate. Campers have the opportunity to create 3D prints and learn different design and technical skills.
Week 1 - Color Algorithms: Make an art piece based on mapping and traditional mural techniques. Explore your creative side using programming, algorithms and color theory!
Week 2 - Robo Racers: Join us to build robot cars out of Arduino boards and electronic components. Code your way to the finish line!
Week 3 - 3D Retro Printing: Lino-What? Lino-Cut! Come learn how to carve blocks into designs or characters and turn them into 3D illusions on paper!
Week 4 - NoIzE MaKeRz: Take circuits to the next level with sound! Bring home a light-sensitive musical instrument created by you.
