Robopots with Gizmo Garden on Sat., Nov. 10

Kids in grades five through eight are invited to make Robopots at the Jesup Memorial Library on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 1:30 p.m. with Gizmo Garden and Christina Dorman, the Maine State Library’s STEM Liaison. Attendees craft a pot, add a houseplant, and then learn how to rig a pump to water the plant every 24 hours.

The making of a Robopot teaches kids math, chemistry, physical science, computer science skills and uses art skills as well. Kids also get to learn about basic electric circuitry. Attendees do not have to have any computer or programming skills to get the most out of this fun and free event.

Registration is required. To register contact Mae Corrion at the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or in person. For more information about this program visit gizmogarden.com.
