Libraries are striving to provide teens with programming opportunities that allow them to learn & collaborate with peers. One facet of programming that libraries are implementing are STEM Maker activities. We have developed a set of easy to follow program guides freely available online to support librarians to implement these activities. In this workshop, attendees will participate in Maker activities and experience fun & cost-effective possibilities for STEM-oriented Making in the library.
