Junior Robotics

Ages: 8-10

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

Our Junior Robotics classes are specifically designed for younger students that are interested in exploring robotics using the Lego NXT systems from Lego Education.  The Lego NXT systems involve more complicated building and programming, so this class will move at a slower pace to ensure that all students are grasping the programming concepts, and developing the skills needed to succeed in our Lego Robotics Lab.

Junior Robotics gives kids from 8 to 10 years old 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.  Students will work in teams of two.

Class will meet once a week for an hour and a half and each class will be limited to 10 students (5:1 student to teacher ratio). If students miss a class there are no makeups.

Junior Robotics 1: This class 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.  12 week class.  Three installments of $138.

Junior Robotics 2: Students will build on the knowledge learned in the Junior Robotics 1 class. 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.  12 week class.  Three installments of $138.
