The Sacramento Public Library in South Natomas recently received a grant to purchase Parallax robot kits.

As a requirement for the grant, the library must provide a couple of Saturday workshops to teach kids robotics principles using the kits.

The library seeks a robotics enthusiast to teach these workshops around the March.

They expect about 10-12 kids to attend. The library recommends either two or three workshops, for a combined total of six hours of instruction.

The instructor can help develop the schedule, and the library will provide the resources along with a room assistant to help.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact us.

A school in Carmichael is looking for a enthusiastic individual to teach a Lego Mindstorms class during Summer School.

The session is 4 weeks long and would include a range of students from Kindergarten to 8th grade (10-20 kids).

The school has a lab with Chromebooks that would be made available along with 4 sets of Mindstorm kits and an assortment of Legos.

This would be the firsts time the school is offering Robotics to the students for Summer School.

If you are interested in helping, please contact us promptly.
