Newsflash Template-48

Shreve Memorial Library’s mobile makerspace, the Make & Go, is bringing STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) learning to library branches throughout Caddo Parish.  This month, the SML Make & Go team will host a series of workshops at Shreve Memorial Library branches September 13 through September 24 using Cue Robots to teach children the basics of coding.

Cue Robots are designed for kids who have an interest in coding. The Cue helps children transition from block-based code to state-machine and test-based programming. The robots encourage children to explore programming languages and robotic capabilities while building problem-solving skills through coding, engineering and design.

Throughout the month of September, the SML Make & Go team will visit Shreve Memorial Library branches to offer programs featuring the Cue Robots.  Children ages 8 and over are invited to join the SML Make & Go team and spark their creativity while developing problem-solving skills with these coding robots. Workshops are scheduled as follows:

  • Monday, September 13 at 4:00 p.m. at the North Shreveport Branch, 4844 North Market Street
  • Tuesday, September 14 at 4:00 p.m. at the Hollywood/Union Avenue Branch, 2105 Hollywood Avenue
