3rd – 12th Grade

Using Lego Education WeDo 2.0 robotics kits, children will be building robots using Lego bricks and learning computer programming as they write code to make their robot complete tasks. Robotics programming opens the door to science and technology careers for children by sparking interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects. The library is a natural space for encouraging informal learning.
