Take advantage of the current trends in tech to draw in new audiences, from children to adults, while also connecting to real-world challenges and new scientific discoveries. Explore free apps designed to bring NASA science and exploration to life, and try a script-writing activity that uses a Green Screen to transport young authors to the Moon and beyond. Give your existing tech spaces and programs real-world context by connecting with local expertise and using library-tested design challenges on sustainable energy and building a cleaner world. Discuss how these hands-on activities can be used to engage diverse members of your community.
