Teens Engineer BHM Offering Robotics and Arduino Classes at Select Branches through November 2019


Teens can get STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) experience with coding and robots after school at select Birmingham Public Library branches. The programs are led by college students with engineering and science backgrounds from The University of Alabama at Birmingham.

This semester, two programs will be offered: Robotics and Arduino.

The robotics class will include programming robots to sense colors like a traffic light. They will start, slow, or accelerate based off their sensors.

In Arduino students get a crash course in coding and circuitry by programming Morse code messages with an LED light bulb.

The following branches will be offering programs. The classes are free but space is limited; some branches require registration. Click the links below for detailed calendar information.

Smithfield: September 12, 3:30–5:00 p.m. (Arduino)
Southside: September 19, 4:00–5:00 p.m. (Arduino)
East Lake: October 3, 3:15–5:00 p.m. (Robotics)
Avondale: October 8, 3:30–5:00 p.m. (Robotics)
Five Points West: October 10, 3:30–5:00 p.m. (Arduino)
Powderly: November 7, 3:30–5:00 p.m. (Robotics)
North Birmingham: November 14, 4:00–5:00 p.m. (Robotics)
