Youth Programming

The Incredible Robo-Foundry
Build a Robot from Scratch!

If you didn’t take this last year, now is YOUR chance.

Build a fully-functional, programmable robot from start to finish! Start with a bag of parts, learn what each part does, build your robot, and lastly use your computer software to program it. On the last day, it’s time to compete!  You will test your building and programing skills against your classmates’ robots. The robot and software is yours to take home so the fun can continue. The instructor is John Papenheim. The first session is already filled - sign up soon!

Youth Band

UW-Washington County Youth Band strives to support and be a complement to local music programs by giving students another outlet to hone their craft of musical performance. Along with traditional band repertoire, the Youth Band will explore other genres like jazz, rock/pop, world music, and creating opportunities for students to create and compose their own music! Geared towards middle school level students (6-8th grade), the youth band will further students' musical education, create opportunities for performance, build confidence and character, and inspire students to reach heights they may not have thought possible!
