Teen Tech Week: Bound By Books Radio Show and Blog!

Bound By Books Crew

If you need a good source for what’s popular in the world of teen literature, look no further than the We Are Bound By Books blog and the Bound By Books radio show!

The Bound By Books crew broadcasts every Monday from 3:30-4:00pm on WGXC: Hands-On Radio on 90.7 FM. This group of book-hungry teens and tweens talk about books they have read, books they are currently reading, and anything else book related. Check out their radio archive to read about and listen to their past radio shows. Or, check out the reviews written by the Bound By Books crew on the We Are Bound By Books blog.

If being on the radio sounds like fun, join us at the Radio Workshop on Thursday, March 21st from 3:00-5:00pm here at the Hudson Area Library. We will be making radio pieces to put on the radio and online!

Radio and Robots!

Social Robotics – Friday, October 12th, 3-5pm
Learn about how robots “sense, plan and act”. Come to a special workshop presented by a team from the University of Albany’s College of Computing and Information on Friday, October 12th from 3-5pm. The Social Robotics Program is an interactive presentation about making robots to help with social tasks. Kids will interact with actual robots and engage in thought exercises about how to design a robot for a task of their choosing. The aim of the program is to introduce students to the future roles of robots in our society and create excitement about the possibilities of working with technology. Ages 8 and up.
