Tuesday – Jr. Lego Robotics (ages 5 – 7)
This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo™ Robots. Students learn about adventure stories, amazing mechanisms, wild animals and soccer, as they use LEGO bricks to build an airplane rescue, a dancing bird, a smart spinner, a hungry alligator, a flying bird, a goal kicker, a goal keeper, and cheerful fans, among others.
Thursday – Apprentice Scratch Programming (Ages 8 – 12)
What’s more fun than playing an interactive video game? Writing one! In this Scratch Programming camp, students work together to create their own games, art, and musical instruments while exploring coding foundations. Students will explore sprites, variables, operators, and clones to increase difficulty and frequently test their games to improve scripting!
Saturday – Junior Aerospace Engineering (Ages 4 – 7)
The Junior Aerospace Engineering classes introduce our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of aircraft and spacecraft design. Through open and focused exploration, students explore and construct air planes, rockets, hot air balloons and more.
Saturday – Apprentice Electrical Engineering
(Ages 8 – 12)
During the Electrical Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine basic electronics and circuits. Students experiment with Snap Circuits® to discover the capabilities of major electronic components. In addition, students build their own flashlights and explore the world of magnetic energy by building their own Magnetic Levitation vehicle.
