This summer, the Makers at Johnson County Library will again offer the popular MakerSpace Passport Program. This is a great way to learn about Maker ideas, tools and skills at various branches in the Library system. Each week a new project is presented by our Library Makers and Youth Services team. Participants can complete a series of different weekly projects using a variety of materials and methods.
At this open, walk-in program, you come in, learn from the Makers, and take home something awesome. This is a kids-only space – no grown-ups allowed! Pick up a Summer MakerSpace Passport your first time, and get it stamped after your workshops. Kids who complete one of each week’s activities will be entered to win the Grand Prize, a family membership to Museum at Prairiefire and a pink 3D printed Pikachu.
Makers are excited to be traveling to several different locations for this program:
– Week 1 & 2 @ Monticello Library
– Week 3 & 4 @ Gardner Library
– Week 5, NO PROJECT, 4th of July Week
– Week 6 & 7 @ Shawnee Library
– Week 8 & 9 @ Leawood Pioneer Library
– Week 10 & 11 @ Central Resource Library
These activities are best for ages 6-12 who can read and comprehend instructions and can manipulate simple tools and materials with their hands. Supplies provided.
