What: Teens Engineer BHM
Details: Teens Engineer BHM is a partnership between Birmingham Public Library (BPL) and The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Engineering that teaches teens interested in math and science careers engineering skills, robotics, and computer coding.

For information about Teens Engineer BHM, call Bessie Miller of BPL’s Central Library at 205-226-3655. Click on this link to find out more: http://bplolinenews.blogspot.com/2017/05/bpl-wins-95000-community-foundation-of.html.

Middle and high school students with a passion for engineering will learn how to program robots, how to solder and gain computer coding skills this fall at Birmingham Public Library locations across the city. Teens Engineer BHM kicked off its fall after-school schedule this week.

Between September and late November, the popular program will be held at 12 of BPL’s 19 locations: Central Library, Avondale Regional Branch Library, North Birmingham Regional Branch Library, Five Points West Regional Branch Library, and eight branch libraries: Ensley, East Ensley, North Avondale, East Lake, Southside, West End, Smithfield, Inglenook, and Powderly.


The program is made possible by a generous donation from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham
