The Libraries of Stevens County soon will have the popular Ozobots kit for youth patrons to use for a limited time this fall.
The Ozobots kit (www.ozobot.com) can be programmed to race and do other maneuvers. The kit, which is intended for use by kids age 10 and up, will be at the Libraries of Stevens County in September. Patrons can use the Ozobots at the Chewelah Library (935-6805) on Sept. 12-13 from 3:30-5 p.m., Coville Library (684-6620) on Sept. 15-16 from 3:30-4:30 p.m., and the Kettle Falls Library (738-6817) Sept. 20 and 22 from 3-5 p.m. Please call the library to confirm your spot.

The intent is to give kids STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities at their local library.
“We think kids will have a lot of fun playing with the Ozobots at their local library—so much fun they won’t even notice that they are learning to code at the same time,” Petersen said. “Ozobots fit in well with this year’s summer reading theme, ‘Get in the Game – READ.’”
The State Library is part of the Office of Secretary of State.[/ihc-hide-content]
