Lego Robotics Club at LaFayette-Walker Co. Public Library

The Lafayette-Walker County Library is proud to present this 4 week course on Lego Mindstorms Robotics! Hosted by Mr. James, this robotics group will start at the very basic beginning and work through to more advanced programming.

LEGO Mindstorms are robotic building sets that uses Technic, a more versatile LEGO building system using beams, pins, gears and axles. EV3 is the 3rd generation robot in the Lego Mindstorms robotic line. In addition to the standard Technic building blocks, Mindstorms has three electric motors, five sensors, data cables and a “Brick”. The idea behind Mindstorms is that youth of any age can build, program, test, and modify robots.

Here is our proposed schedule:

Week 1: Partner off into groups, and build the basic robotic model.
Week 2: Working with your partners, learn how to do basic robotic commands.
Week 3: Going online, we will work to modify our robotic creations and program them to do special activities.
Week 4: Each group will present to the others what they decided to do and talk about their experiences programing!

Registration is open currently, and will end on Monday, December 19th. Click here to register now!

The program will start on January based on popular dates and times in the registration process. Each registrant will be contacted to confirm their spot in the program. First come, first served as registration is limited to 9 tweens/teens.

Let the building begin!
