The future is now with the build-a-bot workshop at the JCC | New

OLEAN — After nine hours in a classroom at Jamestown Community College’s Cattaraugus County Campus Technology Center, a group of eager hobbyist programmers created their own traveling robots.

The Build-A-Bot Family Workshop, a partnership between JCC and Dream It Do It, has consisted of four meetings over the past four weeks where two dozen attendees learned basic computer technology, the history of robotics , testing and debugging.
