MCC at Do Space robotics courses beginning this fall

OMAHA, Neb. — Metropolitan Community College at Do Space is offering a series of robotics courses this fall, helping learners with a strong interest in science and technology extend their knowledge in STEM-related subjects. The course series will utilize a CEENBoT, an open source robot with multiple uses.  
The series, titled Robotics for Kids, is available in three skill levels—beginner, intermediate and advanced. Both beginner and intermediate courses last four weeks beginning Sept. 10. Students can choose Saturday or Sunday classes. The advanced course is offered on back-to-back weekends starting Nov. 5.
“This series of robotics courses is a chance to get the creative juices flowing and for students to discover opportunities in the robotics field,” said Christopher Swanson, coordinator of MCC at Do Space.
