After School Workshops

Does your PTO need to raise money?  We offer fundraiser events!!!!!

 

LEGO in Motion:  Grades 1–6

Come make vehi­cles that can travel 50 feet under their own power.  See if you can cre­ate a vehi­cle that goes the longest dis­tance; pull a heavy load, move like light­ning or crawl at tur­tle speed. Stu­dents will learn how to build: race cars, drag­ster, and amuse­ment park thrill rides.  They will use LEGO® pieces that move with gears and a motor.  Each ses­sion the teacher will dis­cuss key engi­neer­ing and physics con­cepts and demon­strate how spe­cial LEGO® ele­ments work together. You’ll take home lots of new ideas and fun mem­o­ries, but not your LEGO® creations.

The Next Gen­er­a­tion: NXT Robots: Grades 4–8

Explore the won­der­ful world of robots, Stu­dents will cre­ate, build and pro­gram robots that can walk, run, make music, dance, and com­plete and obsta­cle course.

 

Stop Ani­ma­tion Grades: 4–8

Lights, Cam­era, Action!   In this work­shop; kids learn how to cre­ate a story using stop-motion ani­ma­tion. Stu­dents take dig­i­tal pic­tures and group them together in a time-sequence to pro­duce a motion video.  We will use LEGO char­ac­ters, build back­ground set­tings and add voice or music to the video.  Each par­tic­i­pant will bring home a movie on a CD.
