This webinar showcases Howard County Library System’s HiTech Digital Media Lab, where teens develop 21st century skills through hands-on projects and peer-to-peer communications.
At Howard County Library System’s HiTech Digital Media Lab, teens are developing critical 21st century skills and being guided toward careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Founded on innovative teaching methods which demonstrate that teens learn most effectively through hands-on projects and peer-to-peer communications, HiTech provides curriculum that is both self-paced and structured, offering an array of classes and projects for youth to select. The community response has been remarkable. Youth are on waiting lists to register for opportunities to explore and learn about STEM principles while having fun in the process.
HiTech is funded in part through a federal grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and IMLS. Sponsors include Friends of Howard County Library, and Frank and Yolanda Bruno.
