On Saturday 7 July, CreatorSpace ‘Out of the Box’ launched at Hitchin Library, giving residents a chance to get creative with a range of technology. Our Libraries service is trialling this fun new concept to give more people in Hertfordshire a chance to engage with their creativity in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Visitors had the chance to experience a variety of digital kits including:
- Coding for families with young children (under 5) using the robot Cubetto
- Virtual Reality headsets
- Playing the banana-piano with Makey-Makey
- Stop-motion animation workshops: with a free easy to use app, start creating your own movies
Terry Douris, Cabinet Member for Education, Localism and Libraries, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide more opportunities for people in Hertfordshire to explore the amazing creative technology of CreatorSpace.
“This was a great chance to try out something new, and we received very positive feedback from those who attended the launch.”
If you want to get inspired and flex your creative muscles you can visit the permanent CreatorSpaces at Watford and Hemel Hempstead libraries, or keep your eyes out for further pop-up events in Hertfordshire libraries in the near future!
