Library Receives Grant Award for Rokenbok Educational Engineering Kits

We are pleased to announce that the Library have received a grant award from the Chicago Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 

The award will be used to purchase customized sets of Rokenbok Educational Kits. These kits are hands-on technology that encourages kids to engineer devices as simple as a hand tool and as complex as programmable robotics. The kits will be part of the Library's circulating collection, and will be available for checkout as single kits for home use, or as a unit for program use and curriculum support in libraries and classrooms. 

Norman Phoenix, Manager of Grant Distributions, IEEE, will present LaSalle Public Library Director, Cristy Stupegia, the award on Wednesday, March 7th, at 9:00 a.m.  Want to see Rokenbok in action? Click here: https://youtu.be/bBNSP1QzaXA
