2021 Summer Program Details

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.

    Minecraft Explorers, ages 4-5, TIME 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.

    Our 4 to 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 teachers 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 would like!

    Cost: $165

    Motorized LEGO brick creations/coding with LEGO WeDo 2.0 and Stop Motion Animation:, ages 6-8, TIME 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 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.

    Cost: $325

    EV3 robotic battle bots, stop motion animation, and Minecraft, ages 9-13, TIME 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.

    Cost: $325
