Patten to Offer Lego Robotics Class for Children



Registration will open on Monday, March 12 for a five-week Lego Robotics
class for children in grades two to four. The free classes will be on
Tuesday afternoons from April 3 through May 8 (excluding the April vacation
week) from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.



Participants will learn fundamentals of coding by working with "WeDo 2.0"
Lego Robotics kits; each kit has motors, bricks, sensors, and Lego parts for
creating simple machines that can be programmed to perform a variety of
tasks. Participants will build different "robots" and create simple block
coding using an iPad app specifically designed by Lego.



Pre-registration is required, and class size is limited to six. We will
accept up to three boys and three girls for the spots. If there are more
registrants than spaces, there will be a lottery for the spots, and the
Library will run the series again to accommodate all interested
participants.



Jon Huntington of the Sunrise Rotary Club will provide the instruction for
the classes, with assistance from several members of the Library's middle
school robotics group.



"Our middle school robotics group has had such a great time with the Lego
Mindstorms kits," says Roberta Jordan, an outreach and instruction librarian
at Patten. "We were thrilled to learn about the elementary school version
of the program. We were able to purchase three kits, and think these will
provide a great opportunity to build our robotics program at the elementary
level."




To register or to inquire, contact Roberta Jordan by email
(
rjordan@patten.lib.me.us) or by phone (443-5141, ext. 25).
