Teaching Teens How to Fail: Library Spaces and the Maker Movement Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S221
Description :

The maker movement has already infiltrated many libraries. But who is a maker? What does s/he do? The Free Library of Philadelphia offers maker programs, from e-fashion to printed circuits. Much of the philosophy behind making is mentoring youth in tinkering and experimentation; teaching the making process as one of inquiry and inevitable failed attempts. We see the library as the ideal environment to mentor youth as they learn that it's okay to fail.

Learning Outcomes:
• Participants will be introduced to the maker movement and get a list of comprehensive resources
• Participants will explore low-barrier entry to maker activities (low-cost technology)
• Participants will explore proven mentorship practices
