Breaking Down the Wall: Teaching Teens About Technology at the Chattanooga Public Library (With James McNutt of Engage3D)

(This presentation was given with Engage3D Education Director James McNutt at the Fall Tenn-Share Conference in Nashville, TN on 9/20/13)

In July 2013, fifty teens gathered on the 2nd Floor of the Chattanooga Public Library for four weeks to learn HTML, CSS, Python, and how to program robots in a program called DEV DEV:<summer />.

It all started with a conversation in May 2013 between the Chattanooga Public Library, AIGA Chattanooga, and Engage 3D. The goal was to develop a technology/coding program for teens ages 12 – 18 that highlighted the importance of living in Chattanooga, one of a few cities in the Western hemisphere connected to a fiber optics network providing high speed gigabit internet access. Over the course of one month, the project quickly came together as a four week long camp developed by the library, Engage 3D, and AIGA Chattanooga with funding made possible by The Benwood Foundation, a private foundation in Chattanooga, Tennessee seeking to stimulate creative and innovative efforts to build and strengthen the Chattanooga community.
