Library helps local youth learn to design video games

Last fall we wrote about the Independence (KS) Public Library and the Scratch programming classes they were offering for kids ages 8-12. Last Tuesday, the library once again provided its community with an opportunity to learn to be digital creators. They hosted a 4 hour video game design workshop. Game industry pros from E-Line Media! traveled to the small town to provide a workshop for 30 middle and high school students.  The event was made possible because of the National STEM Video Game Challenge and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Getting Started with Arduino: At the Library?

Many libraries are finding new ways to support DIY (do it yourself) culture in their communities. One of the things I'm seeing discussed is the arduino micro-controller, with some libraries providing arduino classes. I've found some resources and references, but would love to hear from you. What are you doing (or thinking about doing) related to arduino?
