The Los Altos Library Endowment has scheduled Science and Technology Week at the library through Saturday.

Activities will include hands-on programs for children, students and adults. A weeklong trivia contest for all ages will offer prizes.

Highlights of the week:

• Jill Huchital, head of product at Ragtag and a former Google Inc. engineer and product director, is slated to discuss “Ingredients of Innovation” 7:30 p.m. today in the Orchard Room of the main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road. Her presentation will focus on the benefits of combining technologies and pushing research boundaries.

• A “Robotics Fun with Dot and Dash” class is slated 3:30-5 p.m. Friday, offering an introduction to robotics and coding for children in grades 2-5. Registration is required.

• An “Introduction to Javascript,” for children in grades 4-6, is scheduled 2-4 p.m. Saturday. Children should bring their own laptops. Registration is required.

The Los Altos Library Endowment supports the library by updating science and technology books, maintaining the Whipple Collection of Great Courses, funding special requests by librarians and sponsoring a variety of programs and speakers. The events are always free and open to the public.
