Santee Library challenges kids with robots

Each quarter, the Santee Branch Library hosts an eight-week long Lego Mindstorm Challenge for local 5th grade students aimed at encouraging collaborative problem-solving in the design/build of Lego Mindstorm robots. Using equipment donated by the Friends of the Santee Library, teams of 5th graders are mentored by a member of the Santana High School Robotics Club to design, build, program, and test their completed robot to maneuver through a maze. The Challenge has been completed by 30 students.
