Children participated in a Robot Making Workshop and Contest Tuesday at the Lafayette County and Oxford Public Library. Each child designed his or her own robot built with old computer parts and household items.
Rainsticks are usually made from any of several species of cactus. The cacti, which are hollow, are dried by the sun. However, on Tuesday at the Lafayette County and Oxford Public Library, creative youngsters turned paper towel rolls, tacks and imagination into some pretty impressive rainsticks.
