  • Canceled – OH, SNAP Circuits® at the Library!

    Tuesday, December 5th, 2017
    Time: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

    This program will not be held this month so we can get ready for Santa’s arrival!  Sorry for the inconvenience.

    For tech-loving kids…we now have Snap Circuits® beginner electronics programming!  Learn fundamental physical principles such as polarity, contact, current, series vs. parallel and short-circuits, while ‘snapping’ together cool experiments that buzz, whistle, flash, fly, and more!

    While we encourage discovery-based learning, we also must ensure that safety measures are introduced and enforced.  In order to ensure that electricity will be treated with respect and caution, first-time participants will receive a short, mandatory tutorial to ensure they will be successful and avoid damaging the components.  Deliberate disregard of safety and behavior guidelines presented in this tutorial will result in immediate removal from the program, and may prevent children from attending further Maker and Stem youth programs.

    Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Lititz for funding this program!

    We were delighted to learn that many area schools are joining this nationwide project.  Last year, we hosted many kids whose schools didn’t have their own Hour of Code (and a few kids who came to both events because they just couldn’t get enough)!

    We’ll have our talented Coder Dojo coaches on hand for the Code.org special tutorials (they’ll be with us this week so we will not have a Dojo next week…sorry for the inconvenience).

    This program will open for registration on December 15.  Space is limited.  Ages 8-18.

    For tech-loving kids…we now have Snap Circuits® beginner electronics programming!  Learn fundamental physical principles such as polarity, contact, current, series vs. parallel and short-circuits, while ‘snapping’ together cool experiments that buzz, whistle, flash, fly, and more!

    While we encourage discovery-based learning, we also must ensure that safety measures are introduced and enforced.  In order to ensure that electricity will be treated with respect and caution, first-time participants will receive a short, mandatory tutorial to ensure they will be successful and avoid damaging the components.  Deliberate disregard of safety and behavior guidelines presented in this tutorial will result in immediate removal from the program, and may prevent children from attending further Maker and Stem youth programs.

    Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Lititz for funding this program!

    Time: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

    This program will open for registration on January 19.  Space is limited.  Ages 8-18.

    For tech-loving kids…we now have Snap Circuits® beginner electronics programming!  Learn fundamental physical principles such as polarity, contact, current, series vs. parallel and short-circuits, while ‘snapping’ together cool experiments that buzz, whistle, flash, fly, and more!

    While we encourage discovery-based learning, we also must ensure that safety measures are introduced and enforced.  In order to ensure that electricity will be treated with respect and caution, first-time participants will receive a short, mandatory tutorial to ensure they will be successful and avoid damaging the components.  Deliberate disregard of safety and behavior guidelines presented in this tutorial will result in immediate removal from the program, and may prevent children from attending further Maker and Stem youth programs.

    Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Lititz for funding this program!

  • OH! SNAP Circuits® at the Library!

    Tuesday, May 1st, 2018
    Time: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

    This program will open for registration on April 20.  Space is limited.  Ages 8-18.

    For tech-loving kids…we now have Snap Circuits® beginner electronics programming!  Learn fundamental physical principles such as polarity, contact, current, series vs. parallel and short-circuits, while ‘snapping’ together cool experiments that buzz, whistle, flash, fly, and more!

    While we encourage discovery-based learning, we also must ensure that safety measures are introduced and enforced.  In order to ensure that electricity will be treated with respect and caution, first-time participants will receive a short, mandatory tutorial to ensure they will be successful and avoid damaging the components.  Deliberate disregard of safety and behavior guidelines presented in this tutorial will result in immediate removal from the program, and may prevent children from attending further Maker and Stem youth programs.

    Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Lititz for funding this program!
