Hudson Crossing Park Hosts STEM Workshop for Kids

SCHUYLERVILLE — The Hudson Crossing Park in Schuylerville is continuing their commitment to education in the fields of science and technology. On Tuesday, August 23, the park will be hosting a workshop for youth ages 12 to 15 at Lock 5 of the Champlain Canal. The workshop is a continuation of the summer’s Solar, Wind and Water Power Projects, but importantly is the second-to-last of the summer before school begins again. On the 23rd students will be tasked with building a “Solar Wobblebot” – a robot made from recycled materials that spins and loops around under bright sun (or a strong flashlight).   

Kathy Ceceri will be leading the workshop. She has years of experience teaching hands-on enrichment classes for kids. She has written more than a dozen books for kids and adult beginners. Her titles include Bots! Robotics Engineering with Makerspace Activities for Kids, Paper Inventions, Fabric and Fiber Inventions, and Video Games: Design and Code Your Adventure. She was the Homeschooling Expert for About.com, developed the robotics badges and other STEM activities for the Girl Scouts nationwide, and designs beginning tech projects and guide for companies like Make Magazine and Adafruit Industries. She also presents professional development workshops for teachers, librarians, and other educators.

Hudson Crossing Park is located on County Road 42, Schuylerville. Importantly, these workshops are free thanks to the On the Canals Program of the New York Canal Corporation and the New York Power Authority.
