Inventor’s Workshop for Kids Offered at Santa Barbara Library

The Santa Barbara Public Library System, in partnership with Santa Barbara Makerspace, presents “The Inventor’s Workshop for Kids” this Sunday, Nov. 3.

In this free 90-minute activity, children will brainstorm ideas, create and design prototypes, and work on overcoming and solving problems in a fun and safe environment.

The class will run from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the Townley Room at the Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St. in Santa Barbara.

The workshop will allow kids to develop and practice basic skills in idea germination and problem-solving. They will be encouraged to push their ideas and not be afraid of making mistakes, but to learn from the entire process in an effort to improve their core knowledge. The session will be taught by instructors who do product design work for a local software company. Materials will be provided at no cost.

SB Makerspace can be found online at sbmakerspace.org and followed on Twitter by clicking here.

All library programs are free and open to the public. To find out more about these and other programs of the Santa Barbara Public Library System, click here or call the library at 805.564.5670.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
