Upcoming Teen Events

Young Makers Club for Teens

Thursday, May. 5, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Teens in grades 7-11, join our Young Makers Club, part of a national club started in 2010 as a collaboration between Make, Pixar and Exploratorium. The Maker movement is all about innovation, invention, imagination and creativity. Josh Burker (maker and author of The Invent to Learn: Guide to Fun) will mentor teens in our Innovation Station and help them create open-ended projects to share and exhibit at Innovation Day, Wilton Library's showcase event in May.  

Participants may be introduced to 3D printing, soldering, Arduino, coding, electronic sewing and other tinkering tools. Projects might include electronic wear-ables, interactive games, electronic gadgets, light-up jewelry, musical instruments, etc. We encourage 7th-11th graders who enjoy tinkering, learning and creating to join us. Must be willing to commit to 12 Thursdays from 4-6 p.m. Sessions begin February 4th and end May 5th. (No club on April 14th.)  Sponsored by the Amadeo Family Fund. Space limited. Registration required.

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 February 4th to sign up.
