Summer Reading is almost here! Sign-ups start on May 14, and you have until July 28th to read, attend workshops, and complete missions to earn points.

Every summer the TECH Lab splits its time between open lab and what we call "Focus Time." Each day during the week, the lab will reserve time for teens to come in and try out some new equipment or explore something that they find interesting, related to a given theme. There are no rules, grades or expectations. We just want you to come in and create something awesome! Focus Time topics will change throughout the summer, and possibly be replaced by certain programs, but right now the schedule we have is:
Focus Time days start on June 5th and run from 1-3 pm in the lab. Be sure to stop by and see what we have going on!
We’re kicking off the summer, and SUMMER READING, with a STEAM week! Come to the lab from 1-3 all week to take part in an awesome program and see what the lab has to offer. No sign up is required, so feel free to just drop in.
Mess around with Tinkercad or Sketchup, and print one of your own designs!
Join Bailey, the lab's summer mentor, as she teaches teens how to use Photoshop to place themselves into photos of places they want to travel to!
We've got Risk, King of Tokyo, Settlers of Catan, and more!
Just what it sounds like. Build a cardboard castle, add some LED lights with copper tape, paint it, or whatever else you come up with!
Once again, we'll be breaking out our 3-D pancake printer, so think of a design and be prepared to literally eat your own art!
We’re ending the school year by holding one last draft tournament, and everyone who participates will get to keep the decks that they draft. The winner will get all the left over cards from the booster box too! We’re limiting sign-ups to 10 teens, so be sure to sign up ASAP.
