Lego Club has a great challenge this month! We are all going to work together to build one city scene. We will have base plates that fill the display case and everything that we build will be put togther to make one cohesive city scene!
 

Geeky Girls

Geeky Girls is back and we are jumping into the fun with Spheros! These are small balls that you can control with a tablet. You make them follow a course, jump a ramp and do other cool tricks, but you have to know how to program them first! Sign up today for the session on Friday, Sept. 20th at 4PM! This session is open to anyone in 2nd to 5th grade, but it's for girls only!

Full STEAM Ahead

Full STEAM Ahead is back from summer break! Join us on Friday, Sept. 27th at 4PM to try your hand at Makey Makey. This is a mind blowing tool that allows you to plug in a connector to just about anything and use that object as a space bar or arrow key. Why would you want to do that? To play games using a banana and an apple instead of a regular old controller, of course! Register today! This session is open to anyone in 2nd to 5th grade.
