Program Description

Event Details

For students in grades 4-8.

Grow and expand your programming skills by applying them to fun robotics challenges! We’ll use a Scratch-like coding environment to operate robots made from Vex robotics kits.

Some experience in Scratch is helpful but not required. All equipment is provided. This seven-week program will take place in the Library’s Creative Space, and it will be taught by Emily Horton, a computer science major and professional software developer.

Free, but this program is now full! If you'd like to join the waitlist or be notified for future sessions of this program, please email

This session runs Feb. 2 to March 23. No class on Feb. 24.
