Kids en­joy hol­i­day fun with ro­bots

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THERE was plenty of hol­i­day ex­cite­ment at the Childers Li­brary as it hosted ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to ed­u­cate and en­ter­tain school-aged chil­dren.

Li­brary staff or­gan­ised hands-on fun with iPad-driven ro­bots, and the chil­dren all took turns pro­gram­ming and driv­ing the ro­bots along tracks spe­cially de­signed by the chil­dren.

Or­gan­iser Rhy Baker said the ro­bots were easy to con­trol and great fun for all ages.

“We have had great re­sponse from the kids, and they all had fun rac­ing each other,” Mrs Baker said.

The ro­bots will be a hot item on all wish lists this Christ­mas.

Ex­cited kids took turns in op­er­at­ing the tiny ro­bots across the floor of the li­brary.

Cu­ri­ous vis­i­tors to the li­brary were in­ter­ested, as the new gen­er­a­tion of ro­bots is a thrill for all.
