Junior Lego Robotics

In the Junior Lego Robotics camp, we use LEGO Education WeDo 2.0, it makes elementary science come to life through hands-on tasks, real-world projects, and relevant technology that engages students. Through project-based activities, students’ skills are enhanced across science, engineering, technology, and coding.

 

The unique combination of the LEGO brick, classroom-friendly software, and inspiring, standards-based science projects results in a resource that builds students’ confidence. Empower them to ask the right questions, define problems, and design their own solutions by putting scientific discovery in their hands.

 

The curriculum is designed for students and covers many foundational computer science and engineering skills that are not often taught in early childhood. These academic frameworks are taught through a series of powerful ideas: the Engineering Design Process, Robotics, Programming, and Sensors. Each Idea addresses foundational math, literacy, science, and art skills. 

If desiring a half day camp (9-12:00) Use can just register for Junior Lego Robotics camp only. 

Be an Inventor

Be an inventor, work like an inventor. A fun Maker-Camp that introduces innovation. Become an Inventor and Engineer!

While working in teams, students learn basics of brainstorming, design and cost tradeoffs, and intellectual property. Teams compete in best designs for multiple challenge projects using material from class and/or home. Previous classes created
Coaster Spirals, Robotic Arms, Scissor Lifts, Artist Robot, electric bowties, etc.

 

Last hour of last day is invention-convention where students present to parents their projects and evaluate their process and teamwork.

Camp Key Elements 

 

  • STEM based curriculum on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics

  • Camps curriculum is designed from beginner to advanced level

  • Hands-on experimental and exploratory study

  • kids will learn strategies for “Critical Thinking, Lateral Thinking, Problems Solving, Designing Projects and Communicating Ideas”

  • They will discover basic physical science concepts such as gears, pulleys, levers, and wheels and axles

  • Students will be assigned with projects according to their grade and skills.

  • At start of each week teacher analysis the kids level and teaches everything necessary for a beginning or advanced student to next level to complete the course work.

  • At the end of week teams will have Robot battles competitions.

Friday Showcase
 

At the end of each week, attendees can invite their family and friends to join us for a showcase celebration to share their final projects. Learn more about the fun and exciting activities your child experienced during the week and have an opportunity to meet your child’s instructor. Presentations vary by course topic and instructors will highlight some of the important concepts covered during the week and possible next steps to continue your child’s learning. Arrive early as showcase begins at 11:00 AM and is typically finished by 12:00 PM. Then we will start Fun Friday - Walking Movie, Ice Cream, Cookies, Games, Lots of fun
