ideaLAB Grand Opening!

Stop by our new ideaLAB to see what exciting projects Largo Public Library has in store for 2015! Take a sneak peek at a variety of creative technology, including: iAuthor interactive ebooks, LEGO Mindstorms robotics, and demonstrations of the library's new 3D printer.

Do you want to give robotics a try? At this workshop, you can work in a group to learn how to assemble and program a LEGO robot.

Intro to 3D Printing

View a demonstration of the library's 3D printer and learn the basics of 3D printing. Registration is required.

If you have interest in new technologies, drop by the grand opening or one of the programs. I have seen their 3D printer in action and it is fascinating. I've read about them, but nothing beats seeing one in actual operation.

The Largo Public Library is an important partner with PGS, and any support we can offer for their activities is beneficial to both of us.
