Children’s Coding Workshop – with Robots!
December 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$25
There’s always something fascinating about robots and now kids can take control of them in a hands-on computer coding workshop on Saturday, December 9, from 2 – 3:30 p.m. at Spellbound Children’s Bookshop. Walking a straight line, or getting from point A to B is easy for humans, but you have to tell a robot how to do that. Students will learn how the robot follows lines, detects and avoid objects and maneuvers an obstacle course. The workshop is for 3rd-6th graders only, and is limited to six students. The cost is $25 each/$45 two siblings. Parent drop-off is fine.
