Robotics workshop set for youth



Two youth robotics workshops will be offered by the local University of Illinois Extension Office in June. Both will be held June 11 at the Jefferson County Extension Office in Mt. Vernon.

The morning session, geared for youth ages 8 to 12 is almost full. But plenty of space remains in the afternoon session, which will be held from 1 to 3 p.m., for youth ages 13-18.

The cost of the workshop is $3 for 4-H members and $5 for non-members. Registration is available online at or by calling the Jefferson County Extension Office at 242-0780.
