littleBits Electronics Workshop for kids ages 10-12*
MAKE SOMETHING THAT DOES SOMETHING!
According to the U.S. Department of Education, only 16% of American high school seniors are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) career. To promote STEM education, the library will offer littleBits (kits designed to teach children to prototype with electronics) workshops for children ages 10-12 to spark their imagination and get them excited about STEM. Members of Cedar Valley Makers will guide youngsters through the design and building of electronics. From simple design to complex prototyping, these workshops have something for everyone.
Duration: 90 minutes
*Each child must be accompanied by an adult.
