NXT Workshops for the Next Generation
Team 4914 held three NXT workshops in August and September 2016. With NXT kits generously lent to us by FIRST, the workshops were held at Fairview Library and twenty kids ages 11-14 participated. Volunteers from our team introduced the basics of programming and taught participants how to program their robot to perform a variety of tasks. Incorporating different games and challenges, these three days were an exciting and educational experience for the participants, who walked away with programming knowledge, teamwork skills, and candy prizes tucked away in their pockets.
