As of January 1, 2018, stewardship of Hive Chicago will transition from Mozilla to a new local non-profit, the Chicago Learning Exchange (CLX). Hive Chicago will have a temporary home at the Chicago Community Trust until the transition to CLX is complete. The Hive is still the Hive. Read more here.

Connecting Youth To Making

Youth making tools to inform adult decisions

Connecting Youth to Making is a learning opportunity based on teens responding to a real challenge that directly impacts them (transportation) and results in a physical computing artifact (working title – The Visualizer) that they will initially share in August, 2015, at the Chicago Southside Mini Maker Faire

Chicago teens will design, build, and document a youth facing interactive event attraction for for real time collection and visualization of transportation data. The “Hive Visualizer, will be portable to travel to various learning spaces. (It will also travel to places where youth are NOT engaged in Hive activities to collect data from the youth we are not yet serving.)
