Roaring into Robotics (with LEGO® WeDo Robotics): Session 2

For Grade: 1st, 2nd & 3rd

This class is simply the continuation of first course offered. The complexity of the robots continues to rise while the kids programming skills are challenged as we introduce the idea of having more than one robot interacting with each other. The kids will build a soccer team including a kicker, a goalie, and cheering fans! By the end of the week they will be programming them to function simultaneously. This course is one of the all time favorites and has the kids cheering their robot soccer team to victory.  This class is a great stepping stone between our first class and our advanced class. 

(Could be taken without having took the first course prior to this course. Suggested age group: 1st- 3rd grade)

Advanced Roaring into Robotics (with LEGO® WeDo Robotics):

For Grade:  2nd, 3rd & 4th

This class stretches the kids' thinking as we take a big step in complexity of the robots built. These robots will challenge the kids to use much more critical thinking than in the entry level classes. The building time increases, the programming introduces advanced capabilities and the level of fun shoots through the roof. This course includes building amusement park bots such as a ferris wheel, race cars, and a carousel! The kids will love being challenged and having the opportunity to explore their own carnival within this fun-filled curriculum.

(Pre-requisite Roaring into Robotics or Roaring into Robotics Phase 2)

Deep Space Terraformers Robotics Camps:

For Grade: 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th

In this LEGO MINDSTORM NXT-based Camp adventure, campers are first tasked to learn basics in the training areas on the Space Shuttle Entropy. Next, campers visit a series of moons, where they hone their terraforming skills. The adventure culminates on the planet Pantheon. Robo campers help transform Pantheon into an environment where humanoids can live and thrive. STEM education is a fundamental part of the Terraformers experience, expounding science, technology, engineering and math concepts in an engaging 'hands-on minds-on' environment. Using LEGO MINDSTORMS Education NXT  2.0 software and the NXT Base Set (9797), guided navigation leads campers forward along this imaginative mission into space.
