    Teen Tech Time: Minecraft Design (ALL SPOTS FILLED)

    Teen Tech Time is a new program that will run during the spring and fall of 2017. The Framingham Public Library will be teaming up with Empow Studios to provide a series of STEAM programs focusing on programming, tech design, animation, robotics and more!

    For our first event, grab a pickaxe and join your fellow Minecraftians for a class in design challenges. Our instructors teach the fundamentals of electrical engineering using Redstone, a special kind of element that mimics electricity almost perfectly. As they master their Redstone skills, we teach key concepts in programming, architecture, and pixel art, all while using teamwork and social skills. It’s the perfect blend of fun, learning, and creativity. All students must play in “Creative Mode,” and must follow our rules of respect.

    Space is limited, and currently the program is full. If you'd like to be placed on the waitlist, please contact our teen librarian John Garrigan at, and he will get back to you if a spot opens up.

    This program is supported in part by a grant from the Framingham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
