Computers for Youth

Because of space, we have had to put our two desktop computers for youth in storage, in order to accommodate "Backyard Wilderness," an large exhibit from Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Tangled Bank Studios.  

We do have laptops that children, eleven years or under, can use.  Laptops are Internet enabled and have Microsoft Office 2013.  Before using the laptops, children must have a permission slip signed by a parent or legal guardian on file, and that parent or legal guardian must be present when using the computer. 

If you are working on a school report or a lengthy assignment, please remember to bring a flash drive (also called a USB or thumb drive) with you to save your work.  When the computers shut down at closing (computers will automatically shut off 10 minutes before closing) your document will be erased.
