LEGO ROBOTICS EXPLORATION (Beginner Level 1, 9 – 13 yrs .old)
This fun and exciting class is ideal for beginners. Students will be building and programming robots using a variety of LEGO® Mindstorms™ kits. Working in pairs using LEGO blocks, gears, motors and sensors, students will learn the basics of building and programming. Students will learn mechanical design, construction, programming and teamwork skills while sharing a robotics kit and computer. Students will have an opportunity to try different LEGO systems such as the Simple Machines kit, WeDo kit and NXT kit to learn the basics in gears, levers, pulleys, engineering design and programming with a computer to teach their robots to move, react, and make sounds to solve daily challenges. This class is excellent for students who have no robotic experience as it allows them an opportunity to explore and experiment with new concepts. This class is good preparation for students interested in learning robotics as it sets the foundation and prepares them for more advanced topics. Students who take this class always perform better in advanced classes. Parents will be invited to view various game activities. No previous experience is required. Students must be in 4th to 7th grade to attend LEGO Exploration classes.

LEGO EV3 MINDSTORMS ROBOTICS (Advanced Level 3, 11 – 16 yrs old)
This STEM based class is an advanced class using the LEGO® Mindstorms™ EV3 Robotics System to build and program robots. Students will learn construction and programming with the EV3 intelligent brick using servo style motors, touch, color, gyro and ultrasonic sensors. Students will build a wide variety of robots and program them with a computer to move, react, and make sounds to solve daily game challenges. Students work in pairs and small teams, sharing an EV3 robotics kit and computer. This class is good preparation for students interested in robotics competitions such as FIRST LEGO League, RoboGames or Tech Challenge. Parents will be invited to view various game activities. No previous experience is required but is strongly recommended. Students must be in 6th to 10th grade to attend EV3 classes. Class can be repeated – new challenges available each session.
