Not covid friendly; instructor basically did nothing while my son guided himself through the activity; instructor wouldn’t stop getting WAY too close to my child. Only reason they’re getting 2 stars instead of 1 is because my kid still had fun building with the LEGO.
What a waste of money. 20 mins of building a very basic beyblade project - during which time the instructor first left, then was on his phone - and the project was even missing a piece! And then that was it for an hour and half (supposed to be 2 hours) workshop. Just playing around with the piece. When my friend went - with the groupon - her son built multiple projects and the beyblade was what he built at the end of the 2 hours when there was time left. The instructor just kept repeating - I was told to only do one project. If this is your idea of marketing you need to think that through again.

About Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems
When it comes to building lifelong skills, the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems (IRIS) combines science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM)—as well as tons of creativity.
Students will learn how to design and build their own Lego models, then bring them to life through a variety of platforms. They'll start with the basics, WeDo robotics, a tethered system that seamlessly bridges static models with simple movements. As kids hone their skills they'll graduate up to more complex systems, like Mindstorm EV3 or go full digital in Minecraft projects.
Kids who are ready to show off their work can collaborate with fellow students to create awe-inspiring robots for the First Lego League—a competition that the IRIS team has taken first or second place in every year since 2014.
