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!
Coding program with stop motion, ages 6-8, TIME 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.
Imagine designing, building and programming your very own robotic creation! Children will work in teams of two and use Bluetooth technology. They will learn age appropriate basic programming skills and simple engineering concepts. Students will prepare to complete challenges while programming their creations to perform with light motion and tilt sensors. In the afternoon, children will have the opportunity to produce their own LEGO stop motion animation movie. Students will build their own movie sets and develop their own plot using LEGO mini figures, LEGO bricks and professional stop motion animation software.
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.
