The Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) held a championship competition recently for kids who participated in the Brooklyn Robotics League. After a 10-week series of after-school workshops where kids were taught how to use LEGO EV3 Robotics and the LEGO Spike Prime set, the Jan. 21 “Super Powered” championship competition convened teams from all over the borough at the borough’s Central Library, where they were able to demonstrate their understanding of STEM concepts.
