Teen citizens! The world has become uninhabitable. We cannot stay here, but we must live somewhere. Fortunately, we have developed the technology to transport every living person on Earth to any planet of your imagination. You have been charged with designing a new planet for us, planning its infrastructure, and making it home.
Over the course of the year, challenges will arise. You, with library resources at your side, will overcome them. You will build up your ideal new world, in words, images, and your mind. The library will host programs throughout the year to spark your creativity, inspire new ideas, build your knowledge base, and let you have fun in the face of crisis. Use these programs to help you through these difficult times.
In the end, the most complete, resourceful, well-researched, and creative world will be our new home. Its designer will be the winner of the Cupertino Library’s STEAM LEADS: Design Your World - Global Blastoff Challenge, the savior of humankind and the recipient of a fabulous prize!
