Lego Engineering

Camp Duration: Each camp is a four day camp that meets three hours each day.

Ages: 6-9

Cost: $180

Introduce your young student to the wonderful world of robotics and engineering with the creative LEGO® system. Students will build several different models that feature working motors and sensors.

What will your child learn in LEGO Engineering?

  • They will learn to program their models.
  • They will learn about simple machines like gears, pulleys, levers and inclined planes.
  • They will learn to measure, estimate and make educated guesses.
  • They will test their conjectures and form new ideas – the key to the engineering process – build,test and revise.

Engineering 1: This is a perfect starter class for students that have never experienced working with LEGO WeDo kits.  Students will learn the basic of programming and how to use the sensors to make their models perform different tasks.

Engineering 2: Students will continue to explore engineering and programming with all new, larger models to build.  This camp will continue to challenge students with creative, problem-solving challenges.  Previous experience with the LEGO WeDo kits is preferred, from either Math Monkey’s Engineering 1 camp or another source.

Lego Robotics

Camp Duration:Each camp is a four day camp that meets three hours each day.

Ages: 9-13

Cost: $180

LEGO Robotics combines LEGO building, computer programming, design, team-work, and problem-solving skills in a fun and challenging environment.

LEGO Robotics gives kids as young as 4th grade the opportunity to explore engineering, math and science. The process of creating autonomous machines that complete useful tasks is what makes LEGO robotics so much fun!

Experience with LEGO Robotics teaches many important skills.

  • Learn how to break a complex problem into small manageable parts.
  • Organize simple tasks to create more complex behaviors.
  • Evaluate results and fix bugs.
  • Build the critical thinking skills that children need to be successful in any endeavor.
Our expert teachers will guide students as they build and test their LEGO robots and learn valuable engineering principles along the way.

Robotics 1: This camp will introduce students to the LEGO NXT kits.  Students will learn to write programs and complete simpler task that require different sensors include light, ultra-sonic, touch and color sensors.  No experience is required.

Robotics 2: Students will build on the knowledge learned in the Robotics 1 camp.  They will learn to combine different sensors to complete more difficult tasks.  The programs will become more complex as they progress through more difficult tasks.  Previous experience with the LEGO NXT systems is require to ensure students get the full benefits from the class.

Programming

Camp Duration: Each camp is a four day camp that meets three hours each day.

Ages: 9-14

Cost: $180

Computer programming teaches problem solving, how to recognize simple and complex patterns, data analysis and how to develop algorithms.  Students that develop these skills will be able to apply them to many other subjects, as well as in life.

Students will each have their own computer and will learn to program using Scratch – a programming language developed by MIT and intended to make programming accessible to students and FUN to use.  Scratch can be used by elementary and middle school students to create games, computer animation and other multimedia projects.

Programming 1: This class will introduce students to basic programming principals and techniques.  Students will learn the basics of the Scratch language as they work through tasks and projects from easy to difficult.

Programming 2: Students will continue to explore the Scratch programming language by using what they learned in Programming 1 to complete more complex challenges.
