The United Space Alliance (USA) LEGO Robotics Camp will be coming back to Freeman Library on the four Saturdays in February. This camp is recommended for children 7-11 years old. Space is limited, so there will be a drawing for spaces in the camp. Parents may register a child for the drawing by filling out a form in person at the Kids Information Desk starting this Saturday, January 15 through Saturday, January 22. Particpants whose names are drawn will be notified by Friday, January 28. There will be two sessions of the camp each day, so parents may choose the 1-2:30 pm or the 3-4:30 pm session.
The USA LEGO Robotics Camp is a free program that teaches children about teamwork as well as math, science, and robotics concepts. The children work in pairs to put together a variety of robots using LEGO pieces and a computerized program. Adult and teen volunteers assist the children with the projects. There will be a different robot project each week, so children are encouraged to attend all four weeks. If your child is unable to attend the four weeks this session, please check back in the summer. For questions about the camp, please call the Children's Department at 281-488-1906.
