“Robotics and Coding” at the Atascocita Library was chosen from a select group of national certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations and tax exempt public charities that help teens improve technology skills and inspire future education and career choices. The Friends of the Atascocita Library received a $7,500 Grant for the Lego Robotics Programs which encourages young children and tweens to learn, experiment, collaborate and play with technology so that they will become excited about learning and developing skills and experiences to help them succeed academically for future careers. (Technologies include: computing, digital photography, filmmaking and videography, graphic design, audio production, robotics, game development and programming, including app development).
The grant is awarded to organizations with a demonstrated track record for building skill proficiency in technology through out-of-school time programs.
