2024 -2025 School Year Robot Lending Library Requests OPEN!

Robot Library Expands and Diversifies

 

Our library is growing. The robot collection has grown to 737 bots. Nevada Robotics runs Robot Lending Libraries with branches in Reno, Las Vegas, and Elko. Robots are available for Nevada Robotics-trained teachers and are checked out for a quarter at a time. Done checkout is available for educators who are starting teams during the 2024-2025 school year, or who want to explore using drones with their students. 

 

Newer additions to the Lending Library include Ozobots and CoDrones Edu. Ozobots are accessible to students from ages preschool to high school. They use color coding so that even non-readers can learn to code the bots. Ozobots are small, round robots that fit into a preschooler’s palm. CoDrones Edu are educational drones for middle and high schoolers. During the 2023-2024 school year, seven Washoe County JROTC programs checked out drones to prepare for the state’s inaugural educational and aerial drone competition season.
