With the end of the fourth season of Downton Abbey aren’t you wondering what the mice of the Abbey have been up to? Wonder no more! Help us celebrate the mouse holiday of Cheesemas and solve the mystery of the Missing Diamond. We will read Mouseton Abbey by Joanna Bicknell, enjoy tea time, and parlor games. All are welcome to come dressed in period attire. Register here.
Bright Start Robotics Workshops
The Bright Start Robotics workshops are designed for families interested in exploring robotics and computer science in a user-friendly, age appropriate, and fun environment. Using Lego Mindstorms Robotics kits, children will learn to build robots, program robots to “speak” and navigate simple mazes, and learn to use digital and analog sensors to control their robots behavior. At the conclusion of the workshop, instructors will review a variety of robot kits available for children as well as opportunities for continued work in computer science and robots.
