Required for class: Computer (desktop or laptop) and you MUST use a Lego WeDo 2.0 kit (One kit can be used by 1-2 learners and costs $215)
We’ve seen them in movies, read about them in books, incorporated them in industry, and now even find them as toys. Robots are quickly becoming a huge part of everyday life and we now need to learn how to work with and create these machines.
These junior robotics courses will teach children valuable concepts in engineering and physics, allow them to experiment with their ideas, and utilize the process of designing a product to complete a specific job.
Your kids will love our LEGO ® – based robotics classes – all designed by a robotic controls engineer with a background in aerospace and physics.
*These are recommended age ranges. We can adjust based on your child’s needs and abilities.
In this junior robotics course, we use a hands-on approach to STEM discovery. Students learn valuable coding concepts while tapping into their imaginations to create and program robots. This class is a great introduction for students interested in robotics and a fun, engaging way to introduce them to coding basics.
Calling all Pokémon fans to join us on this fun-filled adventure to catch ‘em all! This class uses LEGO® robotics to create creatures of all shapes and sizes. Students have a blast making them move by learning coding fundamentals! Kids will also learn how the biology of these wild animals enables them to move. We also cover concepts such as gravity, friction, torque, and angular velocity making this an entertaining and educational introduction to robotics! Even if your child isn’t into Pokemon, these fantastic creatures are very relatable to everyday animals - all are welcome!
Projects include: Students will discover how a Magikarp is able to swim around, program a Pikachu to crawl around on all fours, and build a Ryhorn to respond to a motion sensor
May the Force be with you! Using LEGO ® robotics, students construct droids that will lead them on this exciting trip through the planets in the vast Star Wars universe. By learning coding fundamentals, kids will program these droids to overcome challenges and deal with various obstacles on their journey! Along the way, students will also learn about important concepts including center of mass, energy, gear ratios, shockwaves, and more! Whether your child is a big Star Wars fan or has an interest in space, this class turns robotics and physics into a fun-filled adventure!
Projects include: Build and program a droid that can move around and be steered, Design a speeder bike that can move across any terrain in space, Program your droid to move around on its own and avoid dangerous obstacles!
This class uses LEGO ® robotics to create animal robots and make them move. Why do giraffes have long necks? Why are so many fish-shaped differently? Why do cheetahs need 4 legs? Students will learn about animals and how their bodies help them perform specific tasks. They’ll also learn that concepts like torque, traction, and angular velocity make designing these “anibots” trickier than it may appear.
Using LEGO® robotics, students will learn about some of the coolest environments on the planet. They will create and program robots to: withstand the heat of volcanoes and avoid any lava in the way, have just the right amount of friction to pull their way up steep and snowy mountains, withstand the pressure of the ocean as they raise a periscope from its darkest depths, and more!
Using LEGO ® robotics, students construct and program space rovers that that will lead them on a journey through the solar system. As students explore the planets of our galaxy, they’ll need to conquer the changes in gravity, orbit around objects, deal with the atmosphere, and more. Class participants will learn about how they can use their knowledge to simulate many real-world problems and that parts, time, and other factors can become huge problems when working on a design project.
What’s better than building robots using LEGO ® Robotics? Creating them to climb walls, wobble in waves, or even resist a robot collision! Students will learn about a number of fundamental physics concepts to help them conquer any challenge they face. They’ll encounter many of the laws of our universe and begin to understand that often we need to make trade-offs in order get our project to work in the best way possible.
