About Lego Robotics
Your children will build and program Lego EV3 Mindstorms – designed to help children take ownership of the learning process. This course helps develop the problem-solving skills and collaborative outlook necessary to become creators, not just consumers.
This camp is for children ages 9 to 11.
A Few Details
Lego EV3 Basics
Building: Includes 541 elements that develop skills related to science, technology, engineering, math, and computer science.
Activities: Your children will design and build programmable robots using high quality motors, sensors, gears, wheels, axles, and other technical components.
Purposeful: By using hands-on robotics, students will gain a better understanding of how technology works in real world applications.
- Computer coding
- Critical thinking
- Teamwork and collaboration
- Sharing of ideas and resources
- Adapting to new challenges
Computer programmers continue to top the list of top earners in the professional fields. Schools today are not equipped to teach high level coding skills and this has created a huge demand for programmers that isn't likely to be filled anytime soon. Children who learn programming now will be in a position to land high paying jobs in the future.
Lego EV3 is a prefect step-up tool to advanced coding for our soon to be app builders, web designers, robotic programmers!
Although it is not required, we do suggest your children, prior to this course, take our Video Game Programming, or similar course. The programming aspect of Lego EV3 is somewhat similar - although more difficult - to that of Scratch.
This course is intended for children aged 11-14.
