Modules:

LEGO® Powered Machines & Mechanisms (Grades 3 – 5)

Our LEGO® Powered Machines & Mechanisms camps enable students to work as young scientists, engineers and designers by providing them with tools and tasks that engage them in real-world investigations and problem-solving. They design and make models to solve problems, observe the behaviors of these models, reflect and redesign, record and present their findings. From simple creations to complex machines, these camps are fun and challenging.

Lego WeDo 2.0 Robotics (Grades 3-5)

Lego WeDo Robotics is a favorite of our STEAM participants.  Featuring a diverse curriculum that allows students to explore a variety of concepts, this program offers the students an opportunity to problem solve, create and build unique robots, and even develop coding skills.

Coding Drones (Grades 6-8)

Students experience the thrill of flight and accomplishment as they learn to program Parrot drones using TYNKER’s intuitive visual coding.  They will pilot these drones through extreme maneuvers and fly aerial combat missions all through the power of code.

Virtual Reality Explorers (Grades 6-8)

Students get to experience and explore utilizing this incredibly immersive technology.  Whether it is visiting outer space, creating three-dimensional art, exploring our planet, or problem-solving in breathtaking environments, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
