Nintendo and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale host free STEM workshops using Nintendo Labo program

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ (August 31, 2018) – Nintendo and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale (BGCS) have teamed up to offer free STEM Nintendo Labo programming. Workshops will be held at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale branches throughout September and early October. Any child age 9 – 12 is welcomed to register. Kids will be assigned a time slot based on their age. Nintendo is hosting these 60-minute workshops across the country.

“We see and value the importance of STEM learning opportunities for our kids,” said Curt McReynolds, BGCS Chief Operating Officer. “Nintendo is a master of technology and our kids will surely benefit from being exposed to their products. We have already held a couple of workshops in our other Clubs and our kids are responding positively.”

Nintendo Labo aligns with both Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale’s Globally Competitive Graduate and Innovative Dream Maker initiatives, focusing on STEM learning and creative ways to problem solve.

Nintendo Labo uses a DIY cardboard kit and Nintendo Switch to bring projects to life. In the workshop kids will build, customize, and experiment with the Toy-Con RC Car.
