Do Space brings back its Summer Passport Program

Jun 12, 2018

Do Space is offering a Summer Passport Program for the second year in a row.  Jessica Johnson, Director of Community Learning at Do Space, says putting the program together was a bit of a challenge.


She says creating a summer program for a tech library isn’t something that’s really happened before.   So Do Space had to come up with ideas for the passport on its own. 

Johnson explains kids participating in the Summer Passport Program at Do Space will receive stamps for various activities. 

They then earn prizes based on the number of stamps they collect.  Johnson says there are four types of stamps: code, explore, make and learn.

"Taking a guided tour around Do Space is something you can do.  Checking out any of our variety of tech kits that we have available on the floor, attending a program, trying the 3-D printer, trying our laser cutter, trying  a coding tutorial on any one of the coding sites we have on our resources page at DoSpace.org.”

Johnson says Do Space created their summer program to encourage kids to continue learning throughout the summer months, when they aren’t in school.
