Teen Tech Time - Lego Robotics

Teen Tech Time is a new program that will run during the spring and fall of 2017. The Framingham Public Library will be teaming up with Empow Studios to provide a series of STEAM programs focusing on programming, tech design, animation, robotics and more!

Gear up for a class that combines engineering and programming using EV3, the newest generation of LEGO® MINDSTORMS. Our instructors teach the connection between code and physical action while kids work in pairs to create robots that walk, drive, and play music. Sensors help the robot make autonomous decisions, and kids learn to code using movement, loops, switches, and more.

Space is limited, so sign up by clicking on the event title and filling out the form at the bottom of the page. Please put the grade of the person attending in the message box.

Main Library Movie Battle Royale: Valerian vs. War for the Planet of the Apes

Two movies enter, only one gets watched! Everyone who shows up gets to vote, and snacks will be had regardless of what gets chosen. We'll be doing this on Thursday, December 7th in the J Program Room at the Main Library (downstairs) at 2 PM, and on Tuesday, December 12th in the Community Room at the McAuliffe Library, so if the movie you want to watch doesn't get chosen the first time, you have another chance a few days later!

The choices are:

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe. From the director of the Taken series, The Fifth Element, and Lucy.

War for the Planet of the Apes
Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
