Small Group Lessons – Package of 4
Hands-On Engineering to Help Around the House!
Turn your child’s love of LEGO into a passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Instructors inspire students to become engineers, programmers, inventors and entrepreneurs. Our founders won the First Lego League World Championship two years in a row (first place in robotics out of 10,000 teams) and have also won numerous national invention and science competitions. Robot Academy opened over 14 years ago and has taught thousands of young students. Many of our camp graduates have gone on to win their own international championships. It’s the ultimate STEM experience.
This camp includes:
- 6 INTERACTIVE LESSONS: Personalized instruction blended with social time and self-paced building/programming time means your student will be happy and engaged throughout the week. Instructor to student ratio is 1 to 4 or less with 1 to 1 attention when needed.
- FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE: Classes scheduled when your child is available. We teach worldwide and group students according to age and availability.
- AGES: Students grouped according to age and experience.
INTERACTIVE: Personalized instruction blended with social time and self-paced building/programming time means your student will be happy and engaged throughout the week. Instructor to student ratio is 1 to 4 or less with 1 to 1 attention when needed. 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.
CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING: Our mission is to help kids develop their skills with LEGO robotics to the point where it can become true creative outlet, a profoundly educational hobby/obsession, and a path to future learning in STEM fields. We’ve seen this happen for hundreds of kids, and we know that your student can get there too. We’ve devised a system of Levels to help support students’ development, and to make the process fun. This Level system also makes it easy to pick up where you left off when you show up for a second week of LEGO Robot Camp.
FUN WITH FRIENDS: We allow one registration per robot/computer/household/age group (Jr or Sr) since the Instructors are helping your child successfully program and build the robot. Your child can have siblings and friends work together on one robot/computer for one registration free. If two computers, then two registrations. Invite friends and/or relatives that work well with your child (and you have not been social distancing from family). When camp starts, your child will then be put into a breakout room with instructor(s) and a small group of students their age to allow for interaction. We have kids from around the world! They will be asked to do a LEGO Welcome Challenge while all the students are admitted. Please make sure your child has a bin of LEGOs as well as a LEGO robot when camp starts every day.
KEYS TO SUCCESS: Our programs teach kids how to become real-world problem-solvers and innovators using the LEGO Mindstorms robotics set. Our instructors, called Robot Geniuses, will be working with your child(ren) interactively to build and program their robot to do their work for them around the house (clean their room, feed the pet/stuffed animal, etc). We are SO excited to teach your child creative problem solving. Our Robot Geniuses have won Robotics and Invention competitions and are our Robotics Rock Stars.
