Registration Now Open for Playbots Coding Clubs!

Playbots graphic with EV1 RobotRegistration is now open for Harris County Public Library's Playbots Coding Clubs. In these eight week courses, youth ages 11-14 will create short videos about their communities starring Lego Mindstorm robots that they will build and code. In the final week, participating branches will host special viewing parties where family and friends will screen the finished projects. Viewing parties will be held on Monday, February 26 at 5:00 p.m. 

By registering for the first class, you will secure a spot for the entire 8-week course. Because space is very limited, we ask that participants commit to attending all eight weeks.
