Eco-Bot program for youth

Springvale Public Library and The University of Maine Cooperative Extension present 4-H Youth Science Day Eco-Bot Challenge.  Youth ages 5-18 are invited to Springvale Library on Wed. October 24 from 3-5 pm for this free program.  The 2012 National Science Experiment, the 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge, explores how robots can be used to preserve and protect the environment, while offering a glimpse into the future of science, technology, engineering and math.

Youth will assemble their own Eco-Bot, then discover how the robot functions.  Youth will design a set of control surfaces to program the Eco-Bot to perform a simulated environmental clean-up project.  No prior robot experience is needed.  The program is free and includes materials for the experiment.  

Please register as soon as possible by calling Sheila Dube at Springvale Library, (207) 324-4624. For more information about the experiment, contact Trent Schriefer at (207) 324-2814 or e-mail trent.schriefer@maine.edu .   Springvale library is located at 443 Main Street, Springvale.
