Teens

Asimov's Apprentices

Thanks to a generous Library Innovation Grant from NEKLS, we are pleased to announce Asimov's Apprentices.

Asimov's Apprentices is a series of workshops for teens aiming to ignite a passion for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) by providing access to FIRST Tech Challenge Class Packs and REV Robotics Ciruculum. 

Robotics Basics

This inaugral series will introduce teens to the very basics of robotics with the REV Duo Education kit.

 

Registration is for ALL session and is required. Due to limited resources of the kits, we will need to limit the registration to eight seats. Register HERE

This series will be repeated at a later date for those who cannot participate at this time.
