CSED: Youth Maker Hangout

Hang out and make your own digital designs and computer programs using a variety of tools: Scratch, Bitsbox, Micro:bit, SketchUp, Tinker CAD, Arduino programming, and more. 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 Tuesdays 4-5:30pm during BVSD school year. We do not meet during BVSD breaks.

This event is part of Boulder Computer Science Education Week, December 3-9, 2019.

Create apps. Code robots. Design stories. Explore new technologies, new programming languages and environments, meet robots, try coding, engage with problem solving and gadgets. Meet extraordinary people of all ages doing amazing things during Boulder CSED Week.

Boulder CSED = free Computer Science Education programs for everyone at your library, school and tech partner organizations.

We have code at our fingertips as we drive our cars, check the news on a laptop, or message a friend with our cell phones. Boulder CSED Week invites learners of all ages (adults, school aged kids, and even pre-schoolers) to consider code and create with it! Experience robots, and control them with code, make a block based program or write out coded instructions, learn how to code a new device or make an app, visit with a robot at story time, and more! All of Boulder CSED Week’s program are free and open to the public. Programs are hosted by local experts, educators, and makers, and inspiring technologies offer pathways for code-learners of all levels of experience. Some programs ask for pre-registration. Join us - create with code for this year’s Boulder CSED week!
