Free Robotics for Youth Program- April 14

All children are invited to Triton College on Saturday, April 14, when robots take over, and kids learn to build them. The free 'Robotics for Youth’ event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Triton College Library (A Building), located at 2000 Fifth Ave., River Grove.

Expert builders from Triton's Engineering Technology Department will be on hand to help. Attendees will build a working Lego robot that will move in ways kids never imagined it could.   

Families are encouraged to arrive at 11 a.m.  to ensure they have a robot to work on. All materials are provided free of charge. 

While kids are building their robots, other family members can learn more about Mechatronics (robotics), one of Triton's newest programs. 

No registration is required, but space is limited and will be based on first come, first served. 

For more information, call (708) 437-6915, Ext. 3698.
