Kids Robotech Club
Playing with Legos is a classic pastime, but at Kids Robotech Club, Legos do more than pass time: they help kids build skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. During year-round classes, students learn about gear ratios, locomotion, and energy as they assemble robots using Lego Mindstorms products. Second- through fourth-graders build basic models during six-week beginners classes, and fifth- through ninth-graders fashion more advanced bots that can move objects, sumo wrestle, and feel jealous when you build a second robot. Along with hands-on robotics work, the club hosts a beginners class in game design where students can create their own maze, platform, and racing video games.
