STEAM Saturday - Superhero Robots

Kids will help to transform robots into superhero characters and learn to ‘code’ (give their robot directions) so they have superhero abilities. Superhero robots use special skills to fly, climb, jump, shapeshift, and have other superpowers. Kids will use a wide variety of robots (depending on their age), such as Ozobots, Dash, Lego WeDo, Sphero, and Finch to use their imaginations to combine creativity, design, construction, building, and coding! This is guaranteed to be a whole lot of FUN!
