Build, Program, Test, Repeat!

The Bakken Museum's LEGO Robotics Program gives kids ages 8 through 12 the opportunity to embark on an adventurous challenge to build and program LEGO robots. No prior experience with computer programming or robots needed.  Programs occur on four consecutive Saturdays in the fall, winter, and spring.

Winter

Machine Art

Can machines create art? If people make machines and the machines make art, do we credit the person or the machine? Join us this winter as we build LEGO Robots that can draw in creative and interesting ways.
