Tiverton Library Services and the Institute of Electric and Electronics Engineers Presents Robot Fest for Teens

Sign up for the Robotics Workshops at the Tiverton High School Library, brought to you by Tiverton Library Services, Friends of the Tiverton Libraries, and IEEE.

Tiverton Library Services in partnership with the Institute of Electric and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) presents five FREE workshops this summer at the Tiverton High School Library. These workshops are designed especially for teens, ages 11-18, and participation in the summer reading program is required to attend the workshops. Registration and participation in the summer reading program at the Tiverton Public Library is free.

Staff from IEEE will present all five workshops and work with teens to use software provided by LEGO and build robots.

"I LOVED building my own robot last summer. Dave from IEEE was so helpful and I learned so much. I gained confidence, made new friends, and had a blast last summer. You should try it too!" - Amy, 14, at the Essex Library

These workshops are perfect for the curious at heart, for teens who are interested in learning more about robotics and engineering, and for anyone who would like to learn something new this summer.

Time and Date: Fridays, July 6, 13, 20, 27, and August 3.

Where: Tiverton High School Library at 100 North Brayton Road, Tiverton, RI

All workshops will be supervised by the Teen Librarian.

Robot Fest is sponsored by IEEE, Tiverton Library Services, and the Friends of the Tiverton Libraries.

Teens can register for the summer reading program and for any of these programs by calling the library at (401) 625-6796 x14 or emailing kpiasecka@tivertonlibrary.org.
