Missed the Teen Robotics demo last week? Then you didn't hear about how robots work, or see what a bomb-disposal robot sees as it climbs up and down a flight of stairs. See what you missed in this series of YouTube videos. (Links to the second two parts are in the video information.)

So you've read all the teen books you've found on your own, and you're looking for suggestions? Brandy's spent the month updating the Recommended Reading pages on the Teen page. Sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, or realism, there's an updated list for you. (Mystery-lovers, please be patient; we're still working on your update!)

Also, a reminder: you don't have to be a teen to read teen books--there's plenty that will appeal to adults, too.

June is a military genius, having aced her exams and graduated early from the academy. Her first assignment: track down the elusive Day, the Republic's most-wanted criminal, the boy responsible for killing June's brother, the only family she had left. Day, in contrast, failed all his exams and has been living on the streets ever since, smuggling his gambling winnings to his brother, the only member of Day's family who knows he's still alive. June wants to avenge her brother's death; Day wants to buy the cure to the plague that's ripping through his family's neighborhood.
