Motorized LEGO brick creations and Stop Motion Animation
Ages 6-9
June 22-26
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Join us as we travel through biomes and learn how to create, build, and modify motorized LEGO brick machines! 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. Working in pairs, students will build minecarts, beacons, lava traps, and much more. 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 develop their own plot using LEGO mini figures,LEGO bricks and professional stop motion animation software.
Cost: $325

Coding Program with Stop Motion Animation
Ages 6-9
August 10-14
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Imagine designing, building, and programming your very own robotic creation! Children will work in teams of two and use Bluetooth technology. They will learn basic programming skills and simple engineering concepts. Students will prepare to complete challenges while programming their creations to perform with light motion and tilt sensors. 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.
Cost: $325

Battlebots, Minecraft, and Stop Motion Animation
Ages 9-14
June 22-26 and August 10-14
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Come and join us as we battle EV3 bots that can help defeat the Enderman. In our 9 to 13 program students will learn how to build and code EV3 robots using LEGO MINDSTORM. Each day, students will apply STEM based principles and build several versions of their EV3 bots to battle villain bots and their peers. Students will also learn C-based programming and use problem solving skills to help them solve different challenges they may face with their EV3 bots. During the day children will use Minecraft to complete tasks such as building mazes that are filled with traps and defenses to protect them from arch enemies. They will learn how to use Command Blocks and Redstone to create traps and other cool defenses. 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.
