We are getting ready to participate in a fun, engaging summer with virtual learning for youth to learn about topics of interest to them ranging from nature and cooking to my favorite – robotics. That’s right! We are offering a week-long robotics virtual learning camp through our Summer Fun program to teach youth how to build and program their robots. This week, we are featuring three robots, based on the age of the participants, youth ages 5 to 7 years old will learn how to program and accomplish challenges using the Dash & Dot robots, those ages 8 to 10 will learn to build and program using the First LEGO League Jr.’s 2019 Boomtown Inspire Set, and youth between the ages of 11 to 14 will take move up a level to program and design a driving base using the LEGO EV3 Mindstorms robots. It’s going to be an exciting week of programming for all of the youth through this virtual experience.
