Piscataway Public Library is pleased to announce our second year of the "Summer of MAKE". This unique 8 week program will provide more than 20 programs of making and experimenting with a variety of materials and across disciplines including robotics, electronics, art, botany, genetics, music, sewing and more!!
All programs (including materials) are free and participants will be take home all projects they build. There are no residency restrictions to participation. Programs will take place at both our Kennedy and Westergard branches.
Registration for "Summer of MAKE" begins June 9th, 2014. Participants can register by calling (732-463-1633 x6) or visiting the Kennedy branch of the Piscataway Public Library (500 Hoes Lane, Piscataway NJ).
Program projects are available in two designations: participants entering grades 4-6, and participants entering grades 7-12. Each program has its own registration limit based on materials and type of project. Participants may ONLY register for programs in their grade designation. Registration itself will be a two part process
- Each participant may register for a total of two (2) programs
- Each participant can also choose to be added to the wait list for any and all remaining programs in their grade designation. Participants will be asked to rank the remaining programs they would like to be wait-listed for with 1 being a program they would most like to attend (if there is space) and higher numbers indicating lesser interest (for grades 4-6, participants can rank remaining programs from 1-8 and for grades 7-12, they can rank program 1-9)
Participants can wait list him/herself for as many or as few of the remaining programs in their grade designation as they would like.
Participants will also be REQUIRED to return a signed liability waiver for all "Summer of MAKE" programs. The forms must be signed by a parent or guardian. Only one signed form is required no matter how many programs you participant in. Participants without a signed liability form will be restricted from participating in "Summer of MAKE" programs. Liability waivers can be obtained at the library or accessed and printed from the links below through our "Summer of MAKE" brochure.
You can choose to use the brochure as a registration form if you would like by completing all sections and turning it in at the Kennedy branch, however the only required part of the form that is needed to participant in programs in the liability waiver.
An optional photo release form has also been included with the brochure. We would encourage parents or guardians to sign these as well, but this is OPTIONAL and will not affect participation in any of our "Summer of MAKE" programs.
