Library NExT

Library NExT (Network of Education x Training) is a series of workshops for middle and high school students on topics including robotics, circuits and 3D modeling. Initially started as a pilot program at six San Diego libraries in 2017, it expanded to 10 locations in 2018 with plans to be offered at more City of San Diego library locations. This San Diego Public Library program is a collaboration with UC San Diego Extension and Sally Ride Science.

Level: Middle School (6th - 8th Grade)
 
In this workshop, students will use circuit elements to build hardware they can use to explore heat transfer on Earth and in space. Students will work in teams to design an experiment and test a hypothesis of their choosing. In the Arduino environment, they will be able to translate their experimental design into code and upload it to the International Space Station to see how microgravity and the space environment affect heat transfer.

Level: Middle School (6th - 8th Grade)
 
Get ready to program and fly pocket-sized drones through aerial acrobatic missions! Working in groups, students will build a remote controller and program a drone to compete in a high-flying race. DIY Drones are for in-class use only. The class is recommended for students with little or no experience with circuits and computer programming.
 
Kitchen Chemistry: Fun with Flavors
July 23, 2019 | 4:30 - 7:30 PM | Logan Heights Branch Library | Register Here
Level: Middle School (6th - 8th Grade)
 
Join us to explore cooking through a scientific lens. Students will sniff and taste several test tubes bursting with different spices and learn about combining flavors. We will test the “map of the tongue” theory and talk taste buds. In our food lab, students will choose a base of either applesauce or plain yogurt, add flavors and textures for customized pizzazz, and enjoy their tasty snack in class. Together we will learn about Chaim Gur-Arieh, PhD, and Pamela Low, food science biochemists who co-invented Cap'n Crunch cereal. For safety reasons, no open flame will be used in this class. Any necessary cooking will be accomplished using a small toaster oven, a single hot plate or a microwave. All participants must abide by the safety rules. No prior experience is necessary.
 
Eclipse
July 25, 2019 | 2:00 - 5:00 PM | Central Library | Register Here
Level: Elementary School (3rd - 5th Grade)
 
Throughout history, the movement of the skies has been a source of fascination and an inspiration for both mythology and exploration.  Much folklore surround eclipses, when one celestial body passes through the shadow of another.  Often these have been interpreted as powerful portents or divine acts. In this class, we will explore the history of human understanding of eclipse events and trace the evolution of the science that led to the current view of the mechanics of the Earth-Moon-Sun system and the solar system as a whole. From this foundation we develop the means to predict and observe directly these events when they occur.  Finally we build pinhole cameras that allow participants to SAFELY observe the sun and its interactions with all that orbit in its gravitational pull. These classes are led by high-level, fun-loving, scientists who will also introduce and discuss exciting new research revealing the existence other earths, moons and suns similar to our own.
