Robots at the Ice House?


LEGO Robotics Helps Teach Ice House History

We are proud to say that our educational programs are taking flight. We recently held a session on LEGO robotics at the local Boys and Girls Club. The children were taught how ice was harvested in blocks from our city’s lakes and brought by horse and buggy to the ice house, which is now our museum. The students then updated that process using LEGO pieces and computer software. Discover Bank provided funds so that Rehoboth Beach local, Lydia Hastings, graduate of the University of Maryland Civil Engineering program, could create a great environment for future engineers to learn about Lego NXT Mindstorm Robotics. Lydia held the Lego Robotics course at the Boys and Girls Club of America Epworth United Methodist Church location, and it was a resounding success. The first class learned about the different Lego robotic sensors and even how to program their robots to accomplish different tasks. They had a ton of fun.
