Each month we spotlight a teen at CPL.
Teen Leadership Council member and robotics team expert Megan is a senior at Lane Tech High School and a regular at Sulzer Regional Library. In fact, Megan worked at Sulzer as a Junior CyberNavigator last summer, and she runs programming workshops to introduce teens and tweens to Scratch to help them create animations and videogames.
If you're interested in learning more about Scratch, Megan has authored two zines you can check out at the library:
For Megan, the "library is a space for collaboration, using the skills I have to help my community."
Megan also shared she loves to offer workshops at the library because it makes computer science accessible. "Almost anyone can pick it up and the limits are your own creativity," she said. "My hope is that doing these workshops will help introduce people, especially kids, in the community to computer science."
Megan plans to become an engineer or computer scientist. Judging by her awesome work at Sulzer, we know she'll go far!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge with others, Megan. We're grateful for all your work!
