TechTown Camp Promises MLK Day Fun
Bring on the robots!
If you’re looking for something fun for your future innovator to do this Martin Luther King Day, then plan to have your child attend TechTown’s pop-up technology camp on Jan. 19 at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center.
Recommended for kids ages 7-17 (but open to anyone), the session will provide campers with an introductory robotics and circuitry experience.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., kids will see how electronics work, and be able to “build and play with robotics and safely experiment with circuitry.” The camp is free and there is no signup required to attend. Snacks will be provided, and those who arrive early will receive a free T-shirt while supplies last.
Already known for their year-round after-school programs and summer camps, the TechTown folks strive to provide “an environment that encourages exploration and creation through an individualized path of discovery.”
While the camp gives kids the opportunity to work with robotics, TechTown offers programs in all aspects of technology, including 2D & 3D design and animation, video production, and more.
TechTown Technology Camp, 11 a.m. Monday. Jan. 19. Bessie Smith Cultural Center, 200 E. MLK Blvd. (423) 308-7730, gotechtown.com
