For one hour once a week, kids sit down with experienced instructors to build and program real, working robots from Lego components. Once constructed, their mechanical pals navigate the world around them using student-installed sensors and motors that enable them to recognize objects, see light, and wonder what emotions taste like. Younger classes program their automata with drag-and-drop programming interface WeDo, whereas older classes learn to navigate the NXT-G interface. Classes are currently scheduled on Tuesday–Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

ScienZminds

ScienZminds engineers build armies of robots every day, but they don’t pose much danger to humanity—even children can control them. Which they do. Using Lego kits, sensors, motors, and age-appropriate programming software, elementary- and middle-school students fashion bots that interact with the world around them and carry out instructions. Beyond the robots, ScienZminds’ educators lead several other classes that get kids excited about science, math, technology, and engineering. For instance, an electronics course uses circuit boards to build devices including an organ that reacts to light and a lie detector to help figure out which parent really ate the Halloween candy.
