Tour of the robotics department at Central Lakes College, Staples
Fourth graders from Northhome School stopped by Central Lakes College in Staples for a tour of the robotics department Jan. 8. The students, part of the Lego Robotics Team sponsored by their school and Koochiching Cty. 4-H, were on their way to a sectional robotics competition in Elk River. “They built their robot from EV-3 Legos,” said Jim Schneider, who coaches the students along with Marti Waller.
