Program Description

Teens will learn about circuitry and electronics as they create a robotic flower – a Suntracking FlowerBot -- that moves with the sun. They’ll assemble components such as micro servos, breadboards, light dependent resistors, jumper cables, etc., and add code to the Arduino board. Supplies will be provided.

The FlowerBots will remain at the library and will not go home with the teens. The projects will be on display in the Innovation Lab during the August 3 Grand Re-Opening!

The program will take place in the library's Innovation Lab. 

During the registration window for this program, registration can be completed online below, by calling 309.590.6168, or by visiting the Help Desk on the library's second floor and registering in person.
