We are encouraging curious minds to investigate all things robot, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields during National Robotics Week
Visit our Robot Petting Zoo
Saturday, April 15, 10am–12pm
Stop by the library any time between 10am-12pm to meet some interactive robots! Explore a variety of coding games and technology, such as Ozobots, Code and Go Mouse, and more—for all ages.
Learn more about the fascinating world of science. Robotics Week inspires students of all ages to pursue careers in robotics and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields.
Book recommendations for readers of all ages
How to Code a Sandcastle
Pearl and her trusty rust-proof robot, Pascal, need to build a sandcastle before summer vacation is over, and they’re going to do it using code.
Robot, Go Bot!
A young girl makes so many demands on the robot she has constructed that he runs away.
When a little girl finds an adorable robot in the woods, she presses a button and accidentally activates him for the first time. Now, she finally has a friend. But the big, bad robots are coming to collect the little guy for nefarious purposes, and it’s all up to a five-year-old armed only with a wrench and fierce loyalty to her mechanical friend to save the day!
30-Minute Robotics Projects
Robotics projects are fast and easy in this book where all projects fall within a 30-minute time limit.
The teenage phenoms behind the viral video game Tampon Run share the story of their experience at Girls Who Code and their rise to fame, plus a savvy look at start-ups, women in tech, and the power of coding. This book includes bonus content to help you get started coding.
Teaching STEM Outdoors
Connect nature play, outdoor experiences, and STEM learning for young children with activities, real-life examples, and educator resources. Nurture young children’s innate tendencies toward exploration, sensory stimulation, and STEM learning when you connect outdoor learning and STEM curriculum.
Full of activities, examples, and resources to take the fun of STEM outside, this book will help teachers articulate connections between nature play, outdoor experiences, and STEM learning in young children.
We encourage children to tinker in the wonderful world of robotics!
