LEGO Robotics Kit event
Tuesday, February 25, 4-6 p.m.; Free

Join us in Science House for a tutorial on using the LEGO Robotics Kit. The LEGO Robotics Kit comes with distance sensors, tilt sensors, and motors. When used with Scratch, a free software program developed at MIT, LEGO creations can react to distance and tilt to turn on motors and even play animations on your computer screens. All levels of familiarity with LEGO and Scratch are welcome!

Please RSVP for this event by calling (651) 221-4563 or emailing
