MOSS & Cubelets Robot Construction



Build robots faster than stacking books with MOSS and Cubelets! 

Modular Robotics of Boulder, CO makes robot construction systems that enable anyone to build a robot with no coding or wiring required. 

We invite you to stop by to see how building robots in seconds is a reality with innovative, magnetic robotic components. Then stay because once you make your first robot, you'll want to keep going! Check out robots that slither, roll, react to light and sound, and have surprisingly lifelike behavior that can spark your inner robot-maker.

Ages 12-17. No registration.
Tuesday, June 10th from 3-4:30pm

Cinder Book Review

Cinderella is a cyborg. Just let that sink in. In this amazing book Marissa Meyer has made the gorgeous blond haired girl without any flaws into a cyborg mechanic living in New Beijing, China. She is strong willed even after being kicked around and made fun of since she was 11 years old. She is reliable and has an independent character. Everything about her made me love her. She isn't the sweet, soft, kind princess that you would expect.

I really enjoyed reading about her and her adventures. Even when I tried, I couldn't put this book down. It keeps you wanting to know more and more about this strange cyborg. From the first sentence, I was hooked. In the end, I was psyched to read the next book. I would give this book 5 stars.
