The Rock Valley College Computers and Information Systems (CIS) department will host a "Learn Coding with Robots" workshop on the last Saturday of the month from September though October, 10 a.m. to noon, in the Woodward Technology Center (WTC) on RVC’s main campus (3301 North Mulford Road).

"Learn Coding with Robots" empowers children and adults to create adventures, play games, solve problems, and learn to code anywhere they go.

"This event is for all ages,” says RVC Professor Chuck Konkol, workshop leader and CIS faculty. “I even encourage families to attend. If you or someone you know is interested in coding or robotics then register for this fun, engaging workshop. Oh, and you get to take home a robot to continue the fun!”

All attendees will take home award winning robot, named Ozobot.

Tickets to participate in the workshop are $75 plus online ordering fees. Parents and grandparents can purchase tickets for their child or grandchild and sit with them during workshop at no extra cost. Tickets can be purchased at rvchourofcode.com/coderobots.
