Does your child need help with math?

 

Now in its third year, OneInMath is a free, self-paced, supervised program that allows young children (K-3) to master basic arithmetic skills, so they will be more successful in the future.  Children will learn simple ways to add, subtract, multiply and divide to help them understand math concepts quickly.  Tutoring is provided by teen volunteers of OneInMath.

 

The program will be held on the following dates at the Bascom Branch Library:

 

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Maker Camp, Make: Google

Summer doldrums getting you down?  Feeling antsy?  Just been kicked out of your house for “accidently” setting the curtains on fire?  Are you just in the mood to build something cool?

The library’s Maker Camp is just the thing for you!

 

With help from Google and MAKE Magazine, we will be transforming the Educational Park Branch into a makerspace.  Every Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm, the library will virtually host some of the most interesting professional creators behind the scenes of game design, movies, and music. 

 

On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 pm -1:00 pm, they’ll have the opportunity to create their own maker projects. 

 

On Fridays campers will be able to take a virtual tour of some of the coolest organizations in the country.

 

Each week will have a different theme, with speakers and projects that will build upon it.

 

Week 1—Makers in Motion (July 7-11, 2014)

Week 2 —Art and Design (July 14-18, 2014)

Week 3—Fun & Games (July 21-25, 2014)

Week 4—Science & Technology (July 28-August 1, 2014)

Week 5—DIY Music (August 4-8, 2014)

Week 6—Make: Believe (August 11-15, 2014)

 

The event is free for all but children under 13 will need a parent or guardian with them to use Google+ or participate in the project.  Check out last year’s events to get an idea of what we’ll be doing this year.  And check out http://makercamp.com/ for more information.

 

Spaces are limited so sign up now.  Contact the Educational Park Library at 1-408-808-3073 to get your name on the list.
