Teen Tech: DrawBot!

Do you like to draw?  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to use a robot to draw for you?  Or wait, maybe you love technology, but you lack artistic experience, and are hesitant to draw.  Finch robots offer you an alternative way to draw, full of exciting and fun new challenges.  Using basic computer coding, you can program a Finch robot to create a unique drawing, write your name, or play a game of tic-tac-toe.  Best of all, no experience is necessary, and students will gain practical experience in robotics and coding!.  Students in grades 6-12 are invited to sign up to attend this Teen Tech program.  Don't miss it, this Saturday 1/20, from 3:00 - 4:30 PM.  You can sign up by calling or visiting the Fairbanks Library.
