Stop by the Ivanhoe Library the week of December 6-11th and check out our Hour of Code display, featuring demonstrations with our Edison Robotic kits. Edison is a small, battery operated robot, geared for students in K-6th grade. Edison robots can easily be program through the Edison app on a computer, tablet or phone. Kids quickly pick up on the programming, and soon have the Edison doing all sorts of moves. Over the past year, Lincoln County 4-H, along with with the Library, have introduced area students to Edison robots in after school programs, during summer day camp activities, and virtually through 4-H programming. More information on Edison Robots can be found at https://meetedison.com/.
Now we would like to invite you to come to the library and check out our Edison robots on display. Patrons of the Library can also check out our Edison kits for 3 weeks, so they can learn and enjoy using Edison at their own pace. As a special offer, when you check out a Edison Kit, our local 4-H has arranged for special access to three Hour of Code lessons from the National Computer Science Foundation. Edison robots can also be requested through the Plum Creek Library System’s Catalog and sent to area libraries for pick up, with the same access to the Hour of Code Lessons.
Our Edison Robots were purchased with a generous donation by Norwood Sisson, in honor of Romine and Margaret Sisson. Programming for the kits was created by Michele Van Dyke of Lincoln County 4-H, and access to the Edisons is available through the Ivanhoe Public Library. Stop in and check out Edison December 6-11th.
