About this event

Where do coding, making, and reading come together? At Books & Bots, of course! This event will provide participants with the opportunity to bring their favorite literary characters and scenes to life through the use of Hummingbird Bit robots, crafts supplies, and imagination.

Central Cambria High School’s FIRST Tech Challenge team, The Digital Devils, welcomes readers, makers, and coders of all ages and abilities to join us for an afternoon of FUN! Participants should come equipped with a favorite literary character and/or scene from a book and their imaginations. We’ll provide the rest! Participants will learn the basics of block coding and robotics through the use of MakeCode and the Hummingbird Bit. They’ll also get to exercise their creative muscle by making a diorama that will come to life through the use of sensors, lights, and motors. We’re looking forward to some amazing creations!
