Our camps are one week long, and each class lasts six hours. We offer different classes for children of all ages to ensure that everyone is learning something engaging and age-appropriate.
Students’ health and safety at LetGoYourMind is our top priority, and we aim to make well-informed decisions about our 2021 Summer Programs. We are closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus situation and have compiled and will continue to comply with the latest information, policies, and recommendations of the CDC. LetGoYourMind is cautiously optimistic that students will be able to attend our 2021 Summer Programs in person.
The dates and destinations listed on our website are subject to change. Rest assured that throughout the process, we will communicate what to expect and how to plan so that your preparations go as smoothly as possible.
During the week, kids will work in small groups. Our teachers will lead the groups in guided STEM-related building projects. During STEM builds, kids will experience the engineering process. This includes designing, building, testing, and modifying their creations. They’ll encounter obstacles and have to think critically to overcome them with their builds. Our dedicated teachers are there every step of the way, helping kids discover their passion. Each day of camp offers something new and exciting. By the end of the week, your child will have participated in a range of activities that stimulate creativity and a passion for discovery and exploration of the world around them! Each of our LEGO building projects encourages creativity and teamwork. Our classes range from structured group builds to free building time. By the end of the week, we’ll have done a little bit of everything!
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 following PowerPoint presentations. Children will also use the WeDo 2.0 Bluetooth technology to learn basic programming skills and simple engineering concepts. Students will acquire the skills to complete different challenges while programming using 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.
Come and join us as we build EV3 bots that can help defeat the Enderman! In our 9-13 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.
