Hi Neighbor Donates to Kingwood Library LEGOS WeDo Robotics Program

Hi NeighborSheeran Domescik, President of Hi Neighbor Club-Kingwood, presented the Kingwood Branch library with a generous donation, enabling us to add more units to our LEGOS WeDo Robotics program. With this we are able to increase the number of children who can attend the Robotics programs per session. This is a new and hugely successful program that we are offering as we help to introduce technology and robotics at an increasingly earlier age.

As new technologies are introduced, the library finds that the demand for more than just the written word is needed to help explain the concepts and theories. LEGOS WeDo works with LEGOS and books, iPads, or laptops to make small scaled robots that can actually move.
