Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing! To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, Hingham Public Library is hosting special events for adults and kids. These include:

Lunar Landing Class (ages 9 and up) -- Wednesday, July 10, 4 to 5:30 p.m. During this workshop designed to explain and celebrate the moon landing, students will learn basic concepts of robotics and, working in teams, will learn coding to instruct a simple robot to move in construction challenges. A big part of the workshop is hands-on practice using a Raspberry. The Pi programming environment allows children to do many things with a tiny credit card-sized computer.
