Use LEGO WeDo to engineer a solution to a fictional problem in a fairytale. A strong house with a wolf alarm for one of the three little pigs? An elevator for Rapunzel’s tower so the witch doesn't need to climb her hair? Help the characters live happily ever after. Show off how this new design works and tell how it might change the story.
Get ready to "think green!" as we use Snap Circuits to explore different types of energy sources. We will learn how to use the Snap Circuits sets by working our way through a few basic projects then creating our own environmentally friendly project.
This introductory course will lead students and an adult family member in discovering the capabilities of the Scratch computer programming environment. Students will learn how to move sprites (people, animals, objects, etc.) in programs they create, how to add sounds, how to change colors, and how to control actions with the mouse and keyboard. No experience necessary.
Students and an adult family member will be introduced to the basics of engineering, computer programming, and robotics as they build simple machines using LEGO WeDo robotics materials. No previous robotic or programming experience is needed.
How can we make a roller coaster run as fast as possible? What are some ways we make a car run without any gas? Explore different forms of energy and how they are utilized. In this class we will build fun projects to help us better understand how energy is used in our world every day.
Design, build and program a unique LEGO EV3 robot. The course objective is to build a robot that could be a moving, living organism (an animal, a plant, etc.). Once the design and programming is complete, specific functions related to the organism will be tested.
There are a lot of rolling robots in the world of LEGO Mindstorms, but not too many that walk. Come see what it takes to build a robot that can stand upright and take a few steps. Using EV3 LEGO Robotics kits, kids will design, build and test their own bi-pedal creations.
