Robot Petting Zoo

Come explore how your library can be on the leading frontier of robotics at this user-friendly robot petting zoo. We will have several robot varieties available for you to play with, including Ozobots, Makey Makey, Dash & Dot, Code & Go Robot Mouse, VEX IQ and EDR, and Sphero. These robots provide opportunities for programmers of all age and ability levels to learn more about computer science and robotics. From the preschooler friendly Code and Go Mouse that is coded using the mouse itself, to Ozobots, which are programmed using colored markers, to the more advanced VEX robotics used for robotic competitions, you'll be able to get a feel for which robots would be the best addition to your library makerspace and programming. We will highlight the available resources designed to work with these robots to engage in myriad programming and coding activities. From simple play and exploration, to guided challenges, to open-ended creative design, we will show you how robotics can fit into your library.
