Macoupin County Jr. Robotics Workshop held this Summer

Jr. Robotics Workshop held this Summer

 

The University of Illinois Extension of Macoupin County offered a Jr. Robotics Workshop on Wednesday, July 19 at the Extension office in Carlinville.  This session was for youth ages 5-8. Youth learned engineering concepts and basic programming through hands-on activities. LEGO WeDo Kits were used during these sessions. Youth enhanced their patience, team-working skills and gained a sense of mastery after building their own robots and then programming them to complete a variety of commands.
