LEGO Robots To Invade Forest Glade Library

Thanks to Ward 7 Councillor and Windsor Public Library Board Director, Dr. Irek Kusmierczyk, Forest Glade Library will soon be home to a detachment of Lego Robots.

Councillor Kusmierczyk is using a portion of his ward funds to purchase four LEGO Robotics Kits which will be housed at Forest Glade Library (3211 Forest Glade Drive), and available for lending to teachers for use in classrooms, to community organizations that work with youth, and to the general public.  There will also be four new laptop computers available for simultaneous loan with pre-installed software to operate the robotics kits.

The robotics kits are part of LEGO®’s new MINDSTORMS® EV3 kit which was unveiled in January 2014 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The kits will allow children to build, program, learn, and test their creations using real-life robotics technology.

“Through LEGO Robotics the Windsor Public Library is introducing young minds to the world of technology and innovation which is driving our economy,” says Councillor Kusmierczyk.  “I am delighted to be part of this forward thinking library.”   Councillor Kusmierczyk believes education is the basis of economic development and that City Council has a positive role to play in both by helping position young people for success in today’s knowledge economy.

Robotics is a rapidly growing field, as technological advances continue, research, design, and building new robots serve various practical purposes.  By making these kits available to the community, Windsor Public Library and Councillor Kusmierczyk believe that children and adults will have the opportunity to create and experiment with a technology which will become a greater part of everyday life.

    Have you seen the new Lego Drone kit?

    It’s by far the coolest robotic Lego set to-date. It’s new for 2016.

      We are currently only lending the kit to groups for a program but not to individuals yet, but please call Nancy Peel at 519-255-6770 ext 4562 and she will answer any question that you have about the Lego Robots.
      Thanks.

    I believe our daily works, like washing the dishes, cleaning the house, etc are soon to be done by our home robots. However, these robots are fact right now and you can convince yourself at http://allhomerobotics.com/bobsweep-vs-roomba-780-can-bobsweep-compete-roomba/
