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. Other classes include Minecraft, stop-motion animation, and programming. Students can also take game design and learn to create their own maze, platform, and racing video games.
