Teens in grades 7-11, join Wilton Library’s Young Makers program, part of the national Young Makers Club, which was started in 2010 as a collaboration between Make, Pixar, and Exploratorium. Makers comprise a community of creative and technical people who help one another bring ideas to life. The Maker movement is all about innovation, invention, imagination and creativity. Maker clubs are growing all over the country and the world in spaces brimming with enthusiasm, passion, encouragement and collaboration.
Be part of our community and work with mentors in our Innovation Station to design and create an open-ended project culminating in the opportunity to share and exhibit at a showcase event at the end of May. Participants will be introduced to 3D printing, soldering, Arduino, coding, electronic sewing and other tinkering tools with the goal of creating their own self-directed projects. Projects might include electronic wearables, interactive games, furniture, electronic gadgets, motorized design, light-up jewelry, musical instruments, etc.
We encourage any teen from 7th-11th grade who is interested in tinkering, learning and creating to join us. Register for the first session on January 28th to sign up.
Kids in grades K and up are invited to join the Lego® Club. Sessions will be based on a new theme such as castles, vehicles, towers and more. Children will learn about the theme through stories and non-fiction books and then create a Lego® masterpiece from the library’s Lego® collection. There are 20 spots available for this program on a first come first serve basis. Tickets will be passed out at the Children's Library reference desk starting at 3:45pm the day of the program.
