Robotics, 3-D Building, Circuit Building And Game Design Lab For Teens Today At Northeast Library STEM Event

Today from 3-4pm, the Northeast Branch of the Seattle Public Library, is having another kids STEM event called "BiblioTEC lab."

The information says:
Explore 3-D modeling, circuit building, game design and robotics. Registration is required. For ages 12-18. 
Try your hand at the latest maker tools in robotics and 3-D objects. This program features demos of Google SketchUp and 3-D printing with the Makerbot Replicator II. Learn how to use an Xbox Kinect to motion capture objects and people in 3-D.

Visit Kodu, Scratch, and Minecraft (featuring Rasberry Pi) stations, and use Snap Circuits and Little Bit kits for circuit building.

Through August 31, the Seattle Public Library’s free school-age through teens summer of learning  program “Zone In!” will feature a new focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math skills, funded by Google, The Seattle Public Library Foundation and U.S. Bank.

All Seattle Public Libraries received “science kits” donated by Google, which contain fun building materials, to help children practice their science and engineering skills.

The Library is also helping teens and tweens improve their digital media skills, such as art, activism, robotics, 3-D printing, computer programming, music, history and photography.

The Northeast branch summer schedule for children is
here and for teens/tweens is here.
