The programs focus on the vital STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

 
Code Motorized LEGO Robotic Creations and Stop Motion Animation
Ages: 6-8
Dates & Times: July 5-9 or August 9-13,  9 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.   
Cost: $355
Join us as we travel through biomes and learn how to create, build, and modify motorized LEGO brick machines and robots! 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.

Come and join us as we use the EV3 Intelligent Brick to build bots that can help defeat the Enderman! 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 programming and use problem solving skills to help them solve different challenges they may face with their EV3 bot. In addition children will be tasked to build mazes using Minecraft that are filled with traps and defenses to protect them from archenemies. They will learn how to use code and use command blocks/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.
