COSI Visits Powell Branch Library

Blog Section: 

Monday night at the Powell Branch, we hosted a Beginner Robotics program with COSI where kids ages 6-10 were able to build and program a functional robot using LEGOs. Before they began building, the COSI team members discussed robots and performed a live demo where kids learned some basics of programming. Then the kids were given kits with all of the pieces they needed to build a drumming monkey robot.

Happy Chinese New Year or “Xin Nian Kuaile”.  

Ostrander Branch Library's Book Bunch celebrated 2015 The Year of the Goat (or sheep).  We played games using chopsticks instead of our hands, listened to Chinese proverbs from the book, The Pandas and their Chopsticks: and Other Animal Stories. We made Chinese drums, snacked on fortune cookies and learned how the New Year is celebrated in China.
