Next week is National Robotics Week! From April 6 to April 14, join us in celebrating the wonder that is robotics and other STEM activities.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. National Robotics Week is aimed at helping younger children embrace STEM education and further explore each area of it.

There are many different ways to celebrate National Robotics Week. In Maryland, there are four different events run by the National Robotics Week organization. There is a LEGO Robotics Championship in La Plata, a regional SeaPerch Challenge in Annapolis, a Robot Challenge in Baltimore, and a Robotfest in Linthicum.

You can also host your own event! It’s a simple little form you can fill out here for your event to go public.

If you can’t make it to any of these events or host your own, go to Eldersburg Library and check out Exploration Point! This library offers countless STEM activities, and there are people there to help you with yours if you get stuck.

STEM education is important, and we should all take next week to appreciate that education with some engaging activities, whether it’s at the library or at Robotfest. So, have a happy National Robotics Week, Eldersburg, don’t forget to celebrate it!
