Billings Public Library will host a teen Lego Robotics Challenge starting on Thursday, February 7. The program will be at the Billings Public Library Teen TECH Lab from 5-7 pm. This program will run for three weeks, with a workshop occurring on every Thursday (the 7th, 14th, and 21st) from 5-7 pm in the lab. The presentation is free and open to any teens who want to participate. This series of workshops is to introduce a new crate to the library’s Community Crates program: a Lego Robotics Crate! This crate was made possible through a generous donation from Verizon Wireless and the Library Foundation. The Community Crates program provides 7 crates full of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) equipment that are available to checkout for local educational groups/organizations and schools.
Thanks to a donation from Verizon Wireless, the library is adding a new crate to our Community Crates program: Lego Robotics! This new crate will focus solely on Lego Robots, and to celebrate we are having a Lego Robotics series in February. Teens who sign up will build a simple robot that has a crane, and then we will introduce varying challenges each week for the teens to solve. We are limiting sign-ups for this program to 12 teens who will work in pairs, so call 657-8290 to sign up today!
