Free taster sessions with activities and workshops will be held at libraries across the borough following the launch event of Lego in our Libraries at Hounslow library from 3pm to 5pm on Saturday July 18.
The event will introduce children and parents to the exciting resources and technologies available in Lego education together with a demonstration on how to use the equipment before the youngsters can have a go.
The Lego education programme has been designed to offer support to children in an engaging and creative environment; allowing them to develop their understanding of computing, design and technology, science, maths and languages.
