We love to follow cool new inventions on Kickstarter and we hunt out all the latest announcements about tech toys and gadgets for the coming Christmas holidays. You'll also get our take on children's technology stories in the media. There's lots of cool stuff available, but is it the right choice for the child or teenager that you are buying for?
Just 12 percent of engineers in the United States are women. Silicon Valley and other employers bear the most responsibility for that: Discriminationboth overt and subtle, works to keep women out of the workforce. But this society of ours also perpetuates gender stereotypes, which parents pass on to their kids.
Robots were the theme of the day at the activity, part of the Lawrence Public Library's summer reading program. Nikolas Colom of the KU Robotics Club waits for his assistant to power up the propellers on a quadrotor robot during a presentation for 5- and 6-year-olds attending the library's Kidsapalooza activity on Monday, June 24,at the Carnegie Building. Jessica McClanahan, 13, left, and Katy Walters, 12, apply pressure as ink is pulled across the screen during a screenprinting workshop on Friday, June 21,at the Lawrence Public Library.
If you complete these projects and are ready for something more, check out our Robotics Master! If you already have the an NXT set, you can continue to use it and the related project books by accessing them below and completing a self-determined project. It is also possible the NXT projects are being offered in your county.
Call us Download Brochure. This class is perfect for students interested in automation, mechanical engineering, creative design — or to just have fun with fantastic tech! Students will work in teams of two to build increasingly complex hardware-software projects to eventually compete against each other in creative challenges, similar to those found within the First Lego World League.

We offer our regular coding and robotics classes during the school year between August and May. The classes are one hour long and happen from Monday thru Friday between 3 and 7 PM. Our homeschool classes are held on Tuesday or Thursdays at 1 PM.
I use both fiction and non-fiction to inspire our girls in library lessons. I have listed some that I like to share with my students and that I have available for them to borrow. By sharing these books and stories during library lessons and having them on display, interest in programming and learning to code is constantly promoted—so all kinds of creations can happen!
