Choose Between Two Options
- $94 for a 70-minute robotics party with LEGO Robotics for up to 12 kids ages 7—9 ($175 value)
- $115 for a 90-minute Robochallenge party for up to 12 kids ages 10—11 ($200 value)
The LEGO-themed robotics party will teach kids how to build their own functional robots using LEGOs, learning about pulleys, gear ratios, and symmetry along the way. They’ll either build soccer robots, which they’ll use in an actual game at the end of the party, or construct self-spinning tops that they’ll use to compete for the title of “longest spinning top.”
During the Robochallenge party, participants will build their own robotic cages to catch hexbugs. After all the cages are finished, they’ll compete to see who’s cage can catch the most hexbugs.
During both parties, each pair of kids receive one netbook and one robotics kit to use during the duration of the class. Kids do not get to keep materials or take home their creations. See here for more information.
The folks behind Learning Gears believe that a person's passion for science starts early, which is why their classes are designed to enthrall kids with the wonders of engineering. These lean heavily towards robotics, guiding kids through the programming of LEGO machines to perform simple tasks. Kids in 1st-8th grades benefit from these engaging sessions, which emphasize fun and learning in equal measure. Learning Gears also celebrates kids' birthdays with robotics parties.
