Build Lego robots with Girl Scouts

MARYSVILLE — Girls in grades 6-8 can take part in a new science workshop, which will be working with the Lego Mindstorms robotics system, on April 6 at the North Regional office of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington, located at 1331 State Ave. in Marysville.

“Girls will learn not only how to build a robot, but also how to program it to walk, talk and respond to voice commands,” said Judi Sladky, director of community development for the Girl Scouts of Western Washington. “This program is operated by the science department of Girl Scouts, but the event is open to all middle school-aged girls, with no previous Girl Scout experience required.”

An advance registration and payment of the $14 program fee is required by March 16. Registration materials and additional information are available on the Girl Scouts of Western Washington website at www.girlscoutsww.org. For more information, email Heidi Lennstrom at heidial@girlscoutsww.org, or call the North Regional office at 360-658-8083.
