The Computer Museum of America, 5000 Commerce Parkway in Roswell, has an interesting list of workshops ahead for young (and older), curious minds. CMoA’s mission is “to preserve the stories and artifacts from the digital age while educating and inspiring visitors of all ages and backgrounds.”
Upcoming events include:

· SciTech Saturday – Lego Programming - 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 8 - During National Robotics Week, participants will use LEGOs to demonstrate the importance of details when programming robots.
