Teen Programs - Week of November 28

Are you interested in crafting, or coding, or both?! On Monday, November 28, from 4:30-5:30 PM, teens can come and make a craft in the Teen Area. We will craft for a cause by making superhero capes for children. No sewing skills required!

Then, on Tuesday, November 29 from 4:30-5:30 PM, we’re learning how to code with robots! Using Dash & Dot teens can learn how to code the robot to navigate through an obstacle course. Dash & Dot robots are part of Codename Gener8, a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-focused program is made possible through a grant from the Best Buy foundation and the generosity of the Friends of the Library-Kingwood (FOLK). For more information, please call the library at 281-360-6804.

These programs are for teens & tweens grades 6-12. For more info, contact the library at 281-360-6804 or kwteens@hcpl.net. Get updates texted to your phone by texting @kwteens at 81010. Service is free and confidential; standard text message rates apply.
