Tinker with Technology! #pla2014

Tinker is a group of librarians in the Chicagoland area who, after learning that they were all experimenting with open-ended tech play programs at their libraries, formed a network with meetups to share their experiences. Six Tinker members were at PLA to share some examples of their successful programs for tinkering with technology with kids and teens.

All of these programs, in three categories, are available in detail on their handouts:

  1. Animation and Film Making
    1. Stop-motion animation
    2. Pencil animation
    3. 90 Second Newbery
  2. Robotics
    1. Artbots
    2. WeDo
    3. Mindstorms
  3. Art Meets Tech
    1. Light Painting
