The Knowledge Mobile will allow community members to connect, create and learn with the latest technology, computers, arts, crafts, music, games, audiovisual materials, electronic resources and of course, books in print and digital format. Residents will learn first-hand how to assemble and program robots, utilize STEM technologies, and be able to express themselves through creative artwork and music, or just relax in the park with a good book, watch a movie or play a game. Featured programs will also be designed for neurodiverse youth and include low sensory play and specialized robots that provide assistive learning and behavioral support.
