LetGoYourMind Summer STEM Programs offer structured day programs where kids can experiment with LEGO bricks, and learn the basics of design and engineering while having a blast! Our summer programs run for one week long, Monday through Friday, 9 AM - 3 PM. We offer separate classes for children of all ages to ensure that learning occurs and students are engaged.
Our 4-5 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 like!
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 mine carts, beacons, lava traps, and much more, following powerpoint instructions. 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 build EV3 bots that can help defeat the Enderman! In our 10-13 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 bot. During the day 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 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.
