Lego Mindstorms: Building and Programming

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Wilmington-Stroop
Meeting Room
Lego Mindstorms are sophisticated sets of Lego Technic bricks, beams, axles and gears that come with an 'intelligent brick,' called the EV3, which acts as a robot's computer brain.  Patrons will be building robots with the sets and learning how to program their creations using the library's laptops, on which they will use software provided by Lego.  Because of the number of sets, and their expense, this program is only open to 16 patrons between the ages of 11 and 18.  Patrons are encouraged to attend each of the seven sessions over the winter, as we will be building on the knowledge they acquire. This program will be geared to patrons with no previous experience with Lego Mindstorms.  The materials for this series of programs were funded by a grant from the Friends of the Library.

Our Homeschool Science Fair (in its 4th year) offers the chance for any homeschool student in grades K-12 to display a science project and have it judged.  Students in grades 5 and up can advance to a regional fair held in March at Central State.  From there, older students with superior projects can advance to State Science Day in May at the Ohio State University.  This network of science fairs, organized by the Ohio Academy of Science, has been supporting Ohio students for over 60 years.  There are many forms and requirements necessary because of our affiliation with the Ohio Academy of Science.  Please call the Wilmington Stroop Branch (937.496.8966) to register and learn more.  Limited to 10 projects.
