Very Cool:)

I had my Teen Tech Week program late this year to coincide with our Spring Break. 4 girls came to my program to create and experiment with bristle bots and draw and race with art bots!

Any good ideas for a 3D Printer program for teens? We have had the printer for a couple of years and really never use it..

Thanks!

Hi Aimé,

I've attached a lesson plan I used a few times with our 3D Printer that was successful.  The link to my mini factory is a free 3D print website that is compatible with different printers.  You can also Google "free 3D prints" for a variety of websites.

We are launching out Makerspace during Teen Tech Week this year! any advice for launching a makerspace?

I don't have experience opening a makerspace (yet--we are working on one!) but I do have a link to share that I hope will be useful. http://www.thedaringlibrarian.com/2015/06/makerspace-starter-kit.html

We are doing the following:

Ozobot (Group competition)

STEM Mechanics 

Those are both so cool! I've never thought of a good way to use Ozobots but making a landscape like that looks awesome. Are the LEGOs in the second picture part of one of their robotics kits?

Anyone of the public libraries out there doing a moving night for Teen tech Week???? Movie suggestions???

I am starting a Girls Who Code club at the library on Mar 3rd.
