LEGO Simple Machines Registration Begins Today!

Lots of kids love playing with Legos.  But did you know that Legos can be amazingly educational, as well as fun?

In two weeks we'll begin our first ever series of Lego education programs.  Kids will have the opportunity to learn about important scientific concepts using a fun tool they may already be familiar with.  Our first six-week session will be focused on simple machines.  Kids in grades 1 and 2 will learn about levers, wheels and axles, pulleys, and more!

Registration begins today for Lego Simple Machines!  You can stop in or call 617-972-6435 to register.  Please commit to attending a majority of sessions, as children will build on skills they're learning as the sessions go on.

And keep an eye out because, beginning in February, we'll start another Lego series for older kids (grades 3 to 5) which will focus on robotics!

This is part of our Science is Everywhere grant, which is administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the Library Services and Technology Act, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
