When Upper Dublin High School (UDHS) senior Jacob McCauley wanted to share his love of 3D printing with kids, he wasn’t shy about asking. Jacob has more experience with 3D printers than probably most high school students. He helped set up the ones in the high school media center and was even permitted to use one at

My husband, Michael, and I spent Thanksgiving and the subsequent weekend in New York City (Manhattan to be precise). We arrived on Wednesday by train, the coolest way to travel, and checked in to our Wall Street area hotel. Bright and early Thanksgiving morning we were up to get on the subway to go see the famous Macy’s

Breakout EDU with UDHS

It is, I’ve been informed, illegal to lock a bunch of high school students in a room and force them to use their critical thinking skills to get out. And, if not illegal, it’s definitely not best practice. But Escape Rooms continue to be incredibly popular so there must be a way to use them in school

I'll admit it, as a former Mainer, it takes a lot of effort to force myself to go into downtown Philly. However, several weeks ago having white knuckled myself into the train (yes, I'm a wimp), I was walking in Old City. I had just had a thoroughly lovely lunch at FARMICiA (a salad of crab, julienne

I’m so glad you asked that question, Molly Kane (Head of Teen Services and Emerging Technologies) and I just got back from the Pennsylvania Library Association Annual Conference.

The contract enables us to fully develop the Library design and puts construction on track for 2019. Then, just last

There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories. –Ursula K. Le Guin Isn’t it interesting how the very thing you need simply falls into your lap at just the right time? This happened to me recently. I was skimming through the August 2018 BookPage

When UDPL’s first 3D Printer was delivered back in May of 2015, I was admittedly a novice. My greatest hope as I slid the Cube Printer out of its box was that I would be able to print pre-loaded files until I could figure out how do make my own. My literature background didn’t prepare me for

True confessions time. Yes, I have sewed for 27 years....but most of it was not using patterns. I have made the occasional garment from a pattern but, mostly, I've sewn historical garments-which are made for you specifically and thus don't really use a pattern-or I've altered pre-made garments. However last year in August, I took the advice of

The Quest is On!

Jenn, our children's librarian

Summer is here and so is summer reading, but we have changed things quite a bit this year. We no longer have a summer reading club, we now have Summer Quest! In addition to reading, the children have optional challenges to complete for more prizes. The Quest is for children birth-going into 6th grade. Teens can also
