Featured community highlight this week: The field of robotics may seem sophisticated and intimidating; however, robotic machines don’t have to be very complex. Even kids can learn to make them! Robots are simply machines programmed to perform a task or series of tasks. A makerspace workshop at the Dickinson Memorial Library on Saturday, July 29, 10am-12pm will teach participants ages eight through eighteen how to design their own 3-D printed image. Participants will play with robotics tools such as Little Bits Electronics, Ozobots, and Spheros. 413-498-2455. 115 Main Street. Northfield, MA. (FREE)
