Billings Public Library will host a series of summer camps for teens with Yellowstone Public Radio, Wise Wonders, MSU-B, and more throughout July and into August. The programs will be at the Billings Public Library TECH Lab at various time (see below). The camps are free and open to teens in Yellowstone County.
Video Game Design Camp
Join Brody, a TECH Lab mentor, as he leads a week long camp teaching teens how to design their own video game. Teens will use the Unity game engine to design and create their own game, and learn about key concepts from computer science throughout the process. Call 657-8290 to sign up today!
Podcasting Camp with YPR
July 15th – July 19th
9:00 am – 1:00pm
Join Yellowstone Public Radio at the Tech Lab to learn how to make your very own audio story. Participants will be encouraged to work in groups or on their own to follow their curiosity, ask questions big and small, and produce an audio story by the end of the week. Yellowstone Public Radio staff will teach participants the basics of story selection, interviewing, audio recording and editing, and finding their radio voice.
***Limit 12 participants. To sign up or ask questions, please contact Madeline Alpert at Yellowstone Public Radio by phone at 406-657-2979 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. ***
Construction Camp with Wise Wonders and MSU-B
July15; Aug. 5-9
10am-4pm in various locations
The TECH Lab is working with Wise Wonders, MSU-B, and other community partners to wrangle a group of maker oriented teens and have them create a museum display! Teens will meet in July to tour facilities and decide on a topic, spend the rest of July gathering resources (with help from library and museum staff), and then come together in August for a fabrication week where they will construct a permanent display that will be housed at Wise Wonders! Lunch will be provided each day in August during fabrication week. Call 657-8290 to sign up, or for more information on this project.
