Fayetteville Free Library family engagement coordinator Meredith Levine interviews Grace Enriquez, 6, of Fairmount at the kids’ podcast station at the FFL Mobile Maker Lab.
Fayetteville Two local First Lego League teams hosted a Robotics Open House and Mobile Maker Lab from 4 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at Fayetteville Towne Center Atrium. Andrew Leary and the FTC Team 4957 demonstrated their competition robot and discussed this year’s First Lego League Senior Solutions Challenge. Participants saw Lego Mindstorms robots and creations.
Library staff showcased an interactive Maker Lab where community members could see a Makerbot Thing-o-matic 3D printer in action, make a podcast at the kids’ podcast station and participate in Tangram races. This was a great chance for children and families to take part in activities that encourage the development of STEM skills.
Anyone interested in Lego robotics, 3D printing or podcasting can visit the Fayetteville Free Library Creation Lab or sign up for a one-on-one demo to learn how these work.
