Each meeting has a specific theme and begins with the reading of excerpts from selected and favorite books of classic and contemporary children’s literature. Children then, bring the heroes to life and interact with them by creating constructions from simple, everyday materials, which they finally materialize using the special robotics kits

At the end of each meeting, children borrow books of the thematic section from the Children’s Library, as well as books of their own preference.
Excitement, surprise and anticipation for the next meeting always prevails among the group members.
