A number of students that attended the "Learn Coding with Robots" workshop have parents who attend Rock Valley College as students. One father who brought his first grade child said, "Thanks for offering this program. My daughter has been wanting the Ozobot for a while but we couldn't afford to buy one. This along with the RVC Hour of Code will help her learn more about coding."
Snow didn't stop students and their parents from coming out to the April 27, 2019 "Learn Coding with Robots" workshop. All attendees learned about the Ozobot and learned line following, code colors and Ozoblockly coding. It was encouraging to see that 80% of the students were Girls. The field of programming needs more women programmers.

Our first FREE “Learn Coding with Robots” was a success! The students in attendance ranged from 3rd grade to 8th grade and from RPS 205, Belvidere, Private Schools to Home School.
One parent commented, “Thanks for offering this. We have three children and could not afford this otherwise. They are all interesting in coding and have been looking forward to this for a while.”
