What we're about

We are a group of enthusiastic makers, hackers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs and parents who are interested in bringing hands-on creative projects (a.k.a making) into education. With a growing interest in the maker community and events like Vancouver Mini Maker Faire, our goal is to bring all those interested in DIY (Do It Yourself) and DIT (Do It Together) practices together at public events to share ideas and collaborate on projects. You don't have to self-define as a maker to get involved -- this group is for everyone!

Code Club for Teens

Richmond Public Library

Bring your current project to work on in a collaborative environment and meet others who are interested in learning to code or improving their coding skills. Each week we'll have a short talk or video to introduce a different programming language, library, or topic. Get help brainstorming projects, figuring out next steps for learning, or for getting unstuck. We recommend bringing your own device, but will have a small number of Raspberry Pi workstations to play with, along with controllers and sensors to try out. We can also bring out Lego WeDo robotics, Little Bits synth kits, BBC Micro:bits, or Makey Makey devices to experiment with. This was a drop-in, and you can still do that, but we do ask that you register on the library site if you're attending so we have an idea how many are coming and what their interests are: https://yourlibrary.bibliocommons.com/events/search/q=code%20club%20for%20teens
