The Brainerd Public Library and Brainerd Community Education are partnering up to offer free robotic exploration classes for adults and children to work together to learn how to use robots and more.

Classes will 5:30-7 p.m. May 17 and May 24 at the Brainerd Public Library.

The classes will be led by educator John Tomonovich. During the class, participants will learn the basics of Sphero and have hands-on experience using it. Sphero is similar to the droid BB-8 from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

There will also be a DASH robot, SNAP CIRCUITs and more. It will be the best time for kids to show the adults in their lives how they are learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics topics in school in a fun and interactive way.

These free classes are made possible with support from Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union, the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library and Brainerd Community Education.
