TechKnowHow LEGO® & Engineering Camps

TechKnowHow LEGO® & Engineering Camps

Two or Three Camps per week

Session One: Week of July 8 – 12, 2019

LEGO® Smart Builders and Cool Coders (2 Classrooms)

July 8 – 12, 2019 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 5 – 7

LEGO® fans build and navigate remote-control projects, such as a treaded snowmobile, hopping rabbit, hover car, dinosaur and more! Each project teaches a different STEM skill, from how to use gears and pulleys, to how electricity and infrared light works. Campers also program actions for Botley – a cool new robot. Students code actions by pressing buttons that give the robot instructions to solve challenges. They even learn to use loops to have Botley move a line of boxes and conditional (if/then) code to avoid obstacles. It’s a great introduction to programming logic. SESSION FULL, WAITLIST AVAILABLE

LEGO® EV3 Robotics and Tech MakerSpace

July 8 – 12, 2019 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 8 – 12

Design, build and code! Use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 motors, sensors, gears, and other technical components to make versions of real-world robots. Projects include a hotel “botler” that can be programmed to bring items to guests, a robot floor sweeper, a line-follower and an animatronic animal face. Afternoons are for exploring electronics with MakerSpace projects and learning coding as you create Scratch® programs that solve real-world engineering problems like helping a self-driving car avoid accidents and teaching a computer to “chat” with a person.

Session Two: Week of July 15 – 19, 2019

LEGO® Jedi Engineers Academy (2 Classrooms)

July 15 – 19, 2019 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 6 – 8

Learn about circuits, engineering, and robotics as you design LEGO-scale creations with a Star Wars theme. Build a motorized Porg, create a Speeder Bike that races up and down ramps, design R2D2, the Millennium Falcon, and more! Power your LEGO creations with Circuit Cubes® electronic components that you build into your designs. In the afternoon, explore robotics using Ozobots programmable light and color-sensing robots. Code the bots to perform simulated Star Wars missions – from pod-racing to battling AT-ATs. Finish with K’NEX construction projects as you build masterpieces such as a Death Star, Cloud City, and a motorized TIE fighter! 

LEGO® Mario & Friends Robotics and Game Coding

July 15 – 19, 2019 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 7 – 9

Gain hands-on skills in building, coding, and robotics through projects featuring gaming legends like Mario, Donkey Kong and Pokemon. Build creatures that move, and learn how to control motors, activate sensors and program instructions with code blocks using LEGO® WeDo software. Projects include a Mario racing kart, a Yoshi dinosaur, a Pokemon lion with perpetual motion, and a battling DK gorilla! Plus, make three fun arcade-style computer games as you learn coding fundamentals with Scratch® software. Take home your games to play on any Windows or Mac computer.

Session Three: Week of July 22 – 26, 2019

LEGO® Smart Builders and Cool Coders

July 22 – 26 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 5 – 7

Minecrafter’s Workshop: LEGO® Robotics and Creative Minecraft Play

July 22 – 26 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 7 – 9

Learn about robotics and engineering as you create projects from Minecraft using LEGO® components. Build a moving Ghast, remote-control Ender Dragon, programmable mine cart and more! In the afternoon, explore Minecraft in Creative Mode, building projects which teach how to design and power machines, use circuits and physics to make working contraptions, and make interactive entertainment such as a roller coaster and fireworks show. You’ll get some new building and strategy knowledge, and do plenty of creative design and engineering! SESSION FULL, WAITLIST AVAILABLE

Session Four: Week of July 29 – August 2, 2019

LEGO® Jedi Engineers Academy

July 29 – August 2, 2019 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 6 – 8

Girls STEAM Tech Camp

July 29 – August 2, 2019 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 7 – 9

This camp offers a workshop environment where girls can explore, tinker, dream, and create in a place of their own. Led by female instructors, girls explore robotics by building animals and vehicles with LEGO® components and then controlling them with programs they make with WeDo® software. Girls also use Scratch® drag-and-drop software to design fun computer games to play. Scratch® teaches the fundamentals of computer science, such as loops and conditionals, through code blocks. We’ll finish the week with a take-home DIY craft project, which uses LEDs, circuit tape and craft supplies.

LEGO® EV3 Robotics and Tech MakerSpace

July 29 – August 2, 2019 | 9:00 am – 3:30 pm | $420 | ages 8 – 12
