Ohio children's author Shelley Pearsall will meet with us via Skype to talk about her novel, "All of the Above". During her 30-minute Skype visit, Shelley will take questions about the book and her life as an author. The session will be fun, conversational and informal. At the end of the session, refreshments will be served and an autographed paperback copy of her book will be given away as well as autographed bookmarks. The program is free and open to the public. Readers of all ages are invited to attend and encouraged to read the book in advance of the presentation.
All teens, ages 12-18, will learn some basic programming skills during this two day program. We will be building robots using the Lego Mindstorms EV3kits and the “bots” will be programmed to complete certain tasks each day. Day one will include a “how to” introduction and the start of the building of the robots. Day two will complete the building of the robots and running the obstacle course. Teens will be working in pairs during the entire event to accomplish their assigned mission. All supplies will be furnished and is supported by the Friends of Rodman Library.
