Robotics for Homeschoolers
The library offers a semester-long beginner and intermediate robotics program for homeschooled students aged 10 to 18. This program uses Mindstorm EV3 Robotics. The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Kit engages teens in building a robot with sensors and to achieve an objective. Using teamwork, everyone works towards an assigned task. Students should leave with improved logical thinking and problem-solving capabilities as a result of participating in this program. Check when our next registration is on our calendar.

We bring the Spheros and the iPads, you come with your willingness to play and learn and we’ll have a great time! This program is for ages 9 through 18.
