Motorized LEGO Brick Creations (Half Day Program 9am-12pm, ages 4-5)
Our 4 to 5 half day programs are a perfect way to introduce your child to STEM based principles while having fun and building with LEGO bricks! Each day students will learn STEM based concepts that correlate with the build they are creating using axles, gears, motors and battery packs. Working in pairs, students will follow the teacher’s instructions, step by step, to assemble their build. Once their build is complete students will have time to modify and experiment with their LEGO brick creation any way they would like! Please bring a water bottle and snack.
Master Builders & Coders with Stop Motion Animation
(Full day program 9am-3pm, ages 6-8.5)
Join us and become a Master Builder! Before each LEGO brick creation, staff will discuss key engineering and physics concepts with the children and how they relate to our builds. Students will then build their LEGO brick creations using axles, gears, battery packs and motors following PowerPoint presentations. In addition children will code their LEGO builds using a drag-and-drop based interface using Bluetooth technology. In the afternoon, children will have the opportunity to produce their own LEGO stop motion animation. Students will be able to build their own movie sets and devise their own plot, with LEGO mini figures and other LEGO bricks, using professional stop-motion animation software. Please bring a water bottle, snack and lunch.
EV3 LEGO Robotics & Minecraft with Stop Motion Animation
(Full Day program 9am-3pm, ages 9-13)
Come join us as students build multiple robots that can swing, smash, tilt, spin and launch LEGO and mini figs across the room! Each day children will use LEGO, motors, gears and sensors to code their robots. After each build students will have the opportunity to apply what they learned using STEM-based principles to experiment with the coding and modifying their LEGO creation. During the Minecraft portion of the day, students will be tasked with building a maze. A maze is filled with traps, tricks, and tactics to protect them from archenemies. Instructors will use Command Blocks and Redstone to teach students how to create cool defenses to use throughout their maze. At the end of the week students will try to solve each other's mazes. In addition, children will have the opportunity to produce their own LEGO stop motion animation. Students will build movie sets and devise their own plot with LEGO mini figures and other LEGO bricks, using professional stop motion animation software. Please bring a water bottle, snack and lunch.
