The participants will work together in pairs, programming a Sphero robot with block-based coding, and teaching it to navigate a dangerous maze and escape from Robot Island.

The Afterschool Coding Club program is in its third year at the Penticton Public Library, and was launched with the support of the community through a Gofundme campaign in 2017 to cover the costs of purchasing equipment.
