Recently Cameron Rolle and Jeff Stratter had the great pleasure of attending a library conference for the Make-It program funded by Idaho Commission of Libraries in Boise, ID. During this three day intensive learning environment surrounded by the wonderful libraries scattered around Idaho we experienced how to encourage future patrons at our library with an exciting new culture called “Make-It”. Learning techniques, program ideas, and being provided equipment to help facilitate (S)cience, (T)echnology, (E)ngineering, and (M)ath programs with infused creativity engaging problem solving in all our patrons that walk through the door. Over the course of the next six months we’ll be rolling out scheduled programs as well as in library activities set up for your inquisitive minds to learn, grow, cooperate, and explore. We’re so fortunate to have this opportunity, let’s all participate in the fun that is ahead.
Take a look at a few photos from our seminar/training. Keep an eye out on some of the equipment you see as it will be making an appearance soon in our library. (soldering iron, circuits, robots, makeymakey, programming, and much much more!)
