Rolling with the robots

Storm Lake Public Library turned high tech for its first Robot Friday event last week. The library boasts a squadron of Sphero, Cue and Ozobot robots for different age levels, thanks to funding assistance from the Friends of the Library and IPTV.

“The kids learn cause and effect and problem solving in working with the robots, and once more advanced in skills, can attempt coding,” Library Director Elizabeth Huff said. “We present it simply as having fun with robots, but it is a good skill to have.”

The next Robot Friday is on July 8, everyone is welcome.
