The Library's Maker Party Pop-up is a drop-in, hands-on, two-day Web literacy workshop for teens and adults, ages 12 and up. Participants may attend one or both days and will learn Web literacy and how to program in Python and Javascript. Participants also can help improve Django Carrots tutorials, explore other programming languages, play with Lego Mindstorms or RI/O Bots from the S.P.I.N. STEAM Labs, and craft a personalized binary bracelet. A full schedule of events is available in the Library's calendar.

Maker Party is a global effort by Mozilla. Through thousands of community-run events around the world, the parties unite educators, organizations and enthusiastic Web users with hands-on learning and making. The Central Library's Maker Party is hosted by Geek Girls Carrots, Pacific Science Center and the Library.
