Session one
#playful-learning: Introducing your young child to coding and robotics
Children are never too young to have playful experiences learning with technology! This interactive workshop introduces parents and their young children to the literacy of coding through hands-on play with Cubetto and BeeBot, two very friendly little robots.  Underneath the playful learning with robots, children acquire 21st century problem solving and computational thinking skills.  Attend this workshop to nurture your young innovator and entrepreneur!

Session two
Dr. Carmen Karadeniz and Mrs. Gloria Silcock will have a two part- session starting with eruption dates of the baby teeth and a little overview of sleep apnea in children. In part 2 of the presentation, Mrs. Gloria Silcock will discuss and demonstrate “Fun Tooth brushing” techniques with the aid of our furry friends Ollie Mutt (the dog) and Magi Z (the dragon) by StarSmilez.
