In our live interactive online workshops, we will emphasize social interactions just as much as engineering. We hope that students will feel a connection to their classmates as well as the instructor and teaching assistant. All of our workshops will revolve around open-ended, engineering design challenges. Children will develop empathy as they design for their client and work on critique and collaborations skills. Students will be introduced to challenges each session and be given optional challenges to work on in between sessions. We strive to design activities that allow students to work independently.
Grade ranges listed reflect CURRENT grade level. All times are in EST. Online workshops are non-refundable.
JANUARY ONLINE LEGO Robotics FOR BEGINNERS
TUESDAYS in JANUARY
(1/12, 1/19, 1/26, 2/2)
This workshop is specifically designed for kids who are new to using LEGO SPIKE Prime. We’ll start off focusing on basic building skills and the basics of using the kit and then move toward more complex builds. We’ll also work on social connections so that all kids feel they are part of the group. Students should only take this workshop once to learn the basics and then they’ll be able to confidently move to the Advanced LEGO Robotics workshop.
Materials Required: Participants will be responsible for purchasing their own LEGO Education SPIKE Prime Kit ($330).
JANUARY ONLINE ADVANCED LEGO Robotics – FULL
Wednesdays in JANUARY
(1/13, 1/20, 1/27, 2/3)
This is a great way for kids to meet others with a love of LEGO Robotics and have a LEGO SPIKE Prime kit. We’ll work on social connections so that all kids feel they are part of the group. During Advanced LEGO Robotics, we’ll present a series of design challenges so that kids work their way through the design process, working to creatively solve problems. Students should have experience with the LEGO SPIKE Prime system. Absolute beginners should take the LEGO Robotics for Beginners workshop first.
