Love robots?  Want to build your own?  Then you should come to Central's Teen Robotics Club, which will be held every Wednesday from 4-5pm, in Creative Experience.  We kicked off the first session with presentations by two First Lego League teams, Cafebot and Newton's Lawyers.  Teens then got hands on with some awesome robots.  The program saw teens constructing their robots using Lego Mindstorms EV3 kits.  They also learned to program the robots, and then used them to solve problems!  Hopefully, we'll see you on Wednesday.
