    Posted on 06/04/2021

    Free summer learning resources at The Seattle Public Library
    If your student needs extra help with math, science or writing this summer; wants to learn a new skill; or simply wants to read some new books, The Seattle Public Library is here for you! The Library offers many free educational resources that continue all summer:

    Summer Camps

    Techcelerate - Hack++ 2021 Summer Session:
    Hack++ will be held from July 12th - 23rd from 3:00 - 4:30 PM, and our mentors will be offering support throughout the day. The first week will be spent teaching students the basics of app development and how to pitch an idea. The second week will be time for students to apply the skills they learned the first week to build an app with MIT App Inventor or Thunkable. The last day will be time for students to pitch their apps to their peers and special guests! Students do not need coding experience to join. The registration deadline for Hack++ is June 30, 2021.

    Youth Grants

    • This summer, America’s Promise Alliance is launching a NEW round of $300 mini-grants through the Power of Youth Challenge: Serve This Summer, made possible through support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. The Power of Youth Challenge puts funds directly in the hands of young people age 13-19 to design and execute a service project of their choice within their own communities. Through these projects, young people can generate meaningful change—whether through starting a community garden, leading a clothing or food drive, starting a pen pal program, or running virtual STEM workshops for kids. Projects will be funded on a rolling basis, but we ask that you encourage the young people in your networks to complete the short application by the priority deadline of June 15 to ensure adequate funds.
