Grades 4-7th. Wednesdays May 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, June 6
Absolutely no third graders accepted in these classes. Students who are not ready for the class will either not learn much or leave the class with the impression that robotics is just ‘too hard.’
Students will have an awesome time building robots that can navigate obstacle courses and respond to a multitude of sensors, including motion, touch, sound … To get an idea of what LEGO® NXT Mindstorms can do, scroll down to the video, by a guy whose creations include a robotic claw and a robotic card dealer.
Our students begin work with the the LEGO® Mindstorms base kit to master the programming of basic movements, and then progress to more difficult challenges. We’ll build robots that can navigate mazes, shoot ping pong balls … and more!
All of our Mindstorms instructors have STEM degrees, and most have worked or still work professionally as engineers or scientists.Mindstorms class format
