Thanks to the Friends of the Irving Public Library, a $5,000 donation was awarded from the Irving Share Tank to introduce coding and robotics to children. The Friends were able to provide the Irving Public Library with LEGO WeDO 2.0, Codepillars and Bee-Bots; innovative children’s robots that promote STEM and encourage creativity.
LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 is a hands-on activity that combines the fun of building with LEGOS and the LEGO Brick software for children to learn the basics of programming and modern technology. WeDo bots can pull, push, dance and sing, so the only limit, is your child’s creativity. WeDo 2.0 is recommended for elementary-aged children who love building and working in teams.
Looking to give your child even more of a head start? Children as young as preschool will enjoy computational thinking and engineering principles in a cooperative way using Bee-Bot. This colorful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching counting, sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun. Children can also enjoy DUPLOs and Codepillars.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are great ways to put the fun in science and engage children by encouraging learning through play. Parents are invited to attend and discover innovative and educational activities that will produce tomorrow’s forward-thinkers.
