Snapology of the Hudson Valley will present Lego Robotics to students ages 7 and up from 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the Howland Public Library, 313 Main St., Beacon. This free introduction to Lego Robotics will piggyback with the PARP assembly that Snapology will do at the JVF School that same day.

The program encourages children to build robotic models featuring working motors and sensors. Participants will work in teams with guided instructions to build and program Lego® models. Learning will be enhanced through the use of laptops.

After this introductory program, Snapology will bring a Lego Robotics series to the library in the spring. An adult must register a child for this program (limited to 16 children) by contacting Ginny, head of youth services, at 845-831-1134, ext. 103 or [email protected]. Check the calendar at for more children’s programs.
