July 6 @ 1:00 pm - July 10 @ 5:00 pm EDT$315
LEGO Robot STEM Camp Live Interactive Programming and Building Robots to Solve Problems Around the House and Beyond Personalized instruction blended with social time and self-paced building/programming time means your student will be happy and engaged throughout the day. Instructor to student ratio is 1 to 6 with one on one attention when needed. Students use zoom breakouts so that they are working with the instructor and problem-solving with 5 other students their age. Fun video demonstrations (accessed on-demand via an online portal) empower kids to learn real building and programming techniques on their schedule. Access to the Robot Guy (two-time FIRST LEGO League world champion) and Virtual Robot Geniuses for troubleshooting help enables kids to succeed with their creations. Kids learn to become self-motivated inventors, designers, developers, and engineers. There is truly no better way to prepare them for a love of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
1. Computer with reliable internet access (iPads and phones can show our screen but student can’t program on it)
2. LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 set (the older NXT set is also acceptable and can be used with EV3 programming language).
