SumoBots coming Dec. 28 & 30!


SumoBots coming Dec. 28 & 30!

Let’s get ready to rumble! We’ve got an exciting interactive display coming to the Library this holiday break – the Prodomax Robot Rumble!

On December 28th and 30th we’ll have an interactive display set up for kids to watch and play with SumoBots - small robots designed to ‘wrestle’ each other in a mini-sumo ring. They’re designed from scratch and some parts are even made with a 3D printer!   

It’s a great chance for kids to get some hands-on experience with robots and get an introduction to the world of coding, engineering and robotics. Drop in during the hours listed below and check out the SumoBots in action.

Monday, December 28 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Downtown - 60 Worsley St., Barrie

Wednesday, December 30 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Painswick - 48 Dean Ave., Barrie

Thanks to Prodomax and Cybergnomes for bringing this exciting display to the Barrie Public Library.
