The H.R. Macmillan Space Centre is coming to Smithers Public Library on their Northern BC Summer Tour. Last year’s workshop was a huge hit and we are thrilled to have the Space Centre return.
This year’s workshop engages kids in problem solving, design challenges & exploration using STEM* (an educational program designed to foster inquiring minds, logical reasoning & collaboration skills with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics). It may sound like a mouthful but it’s really just a lot of fun working with “Little Bits” and “Ozobots” robotics. (Moms and Dads and Guardians can sit in with their child).
Monday, July 10th
Two workshops: 9 – 10:30 a.m. OR 10:30 – noon
The workshops are FREE but there is a maximum of 30 in each session so kids must PRE-REGISTER.
What’s an Ozobots? It’s a new way to introduce kids to coding and robotics. Our workshop is
aimed at kids who have never been exposed to robotics and coding and creating an opportunity
for everyone to have fun!
How do Little Bits work? Little Bits are magnetic snap together circuits. Kids are introduced maker mindset of being active, engaged, playful and resourceful. It’s a great way for kids to explore problem solving and have fun.
