Fun and learning with robots: library wraps up summer program

Posted

The summer’s final World-Class Wednesday event put on by the Middletown Public Library might have been about robots, but the fun and education associated with the program was anything but robotic.

More than 30 children and parents attended the event at the MCSO Building on July 26 to learn about robots and their abilities and purposes from David Jack, an award-winning performer, who enthralled audience members with demonstrations of small robots.

Drones, miniature storm troopers, and Roombas were just some of the fun that audience members were subjected to from Jack.

It has only been in the last two years that Jack has added the robot aspect to his repertoire. He’s been giving educational and entertaining performances for 20 years to school children about anti-bullying, standardized testing, patriotism, holidays, character-building, and music.

The program was part of the library’s “Build a Better World” Summer Reading program.
