BLUBOT, Ozobot, Sphero SPRK, and Wedo v.2, these are the among the robots Logan residents will soon be getting their hands on thanks to a state government grant to Logan City Council.
Mayor Luke Smith said the grant had been provided to introduce Logan residents to the world of coding and robotics and develop their skills through hands-on experience.
“The learn-through-play activities will be available to library visitors of all ages with programs being delivered as early as the June/July school holidays,” he said.
“These programs are a fun and interactive way for Logan residents to introduce themselves to robotics and coding and help develop some of the skills that will inevitably be needed in the near future,” mayor Smith said.
The program was announced today at Browns Plains State School by Logan mayor Luke Smith and State Member for Logan, Linus Power.
“Technology already plays an important role in our lives, and developing skills in areas such as coding and robotics is becoming increasingly important and it is inevitable that it too will be a part of our everyday lives,” Mr Power said.
The coding and robotics offered at Logan West Library will support efforts already being delivered in Queensland’s schools through the advancing education program.
“Having programs in schools, local libraries and learning centres allows everyone to have digital literacy and ensures everyone can fully participate in the digital economy – something that is crucial to the future prosperity of Queensland,” Mr Power said.
