Kids can learn about robots on holidays
FRASER Coast libraries are offering children the opportunity to learn about robots these summer holidays.
The sessions will go through the basics of how these unique robots work and how they can be programmed.
Councillor George Seymour said that the introductory sessions would be a fun and interactive way to learning about robots and computer programming.
"These small robots can be programmed to do a wide range of manoeuvres and they are a very interactive way to teach children about computer coding.
"At the libraries we are always trying to offer new and engaging activities.
"These are introductory sessions, but later we will be holding weekly sessions that teach more in depth computer coding of the robots," Cr Seymour said.
"Libraries are much more than just books - they are community hubs for people of all ages and interests."
The sessions are suitable for children aged 8 and over.
Bookings made at the libraries are essential and there is a booking fee of $2.70 per child.
