Veteran teacher Rosa Eilert leads the introduction to robotics course that runs 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday at the museum at 127 S. Mission St., Wenatchee.
Students can enroll on a day-to-day basis or all four days. Each day has a separate theme: Monday’s project is constructing an art bot, Tuesday features Vibrabots and Miniwalkers, Wednesday’s class involves constructing a robotic arm and Thursday’s focus is programming.
“We are excited to offer this class to kids interested in gaining some basic experience in designing and building robots,” said museum education coordinator Selina Danko. “Rosa is the perfect teacher. She loves to help kids learn through exploration and experience.”
Students will assemble robots with small motors, solar panels, batteries and robot kits. Each day features a project that students can take home. Space is limited to 15 students. Cost of the program is $30 per day for museum members, $35 for nonmembers. To attend all week, cost is $100 for members and $120 for nonmembers.
