CANAS­TOTA » Canas­tota Pub­lic Li­brary’s GEMS Group (Girls in­ter­ested in En­gi­neer­ing, Math and Science) will be mak­ing Minty Boost Kits at its Dec. 1 meet­ing in the li­brary’s Carnegie Room from 3:304:30 p.m. Sign-up is nec­es­sary as space is limited.

Minty Boost Kits are small and sim­ple, yet pow­er­ful USB charg­ers for an MP3 player, cam­era, cell phone or other gad­get that is plugged into a USB port to charge. Par­tic­i­pants will learn to do sim­ple wiring and sol­der­ing in this project.

The li­brary is work­ing with Mor­risville State Col­lege’s Tech­nol­ogy Club, which is sup­ply­ing the kits and help­ing the girls un­der­stand the tech­nol­ogy needed to make the kit.

The GEMS pro­gram is for girls ages 10-15. Each meet­ing fea­tures a speaker and an ac­tiv­ity re­lated to en­gi­neer­ing, math or science. There is no cost to at­tend. To sign up, call the li­brary at (315) 697-7030.
