Our first LEGO Science Workshop was a big success! Our group of 20 enthusiastic budding scientists built and programmed a couple of mechanical dancing birds. In the process, we learned about pulleys, the mechanics of belt drives, crown gears, gearing up and gearing down, and programming logic.

This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services

Last week we had historical sword experts Jeff Goodhind and Jeff Lord here at the library for a presentation and a demonstration of swords through the ages! We learned sword-fighting techniques and about the differences between various swords. It was pretty cool!!
