Exploration in Computer Programming Through Animation - Rising 5-8 Graders

In this half-day summer camp, students will use unique LEGO® kits to build a variety of cars that they will battle. This is a class of exploration, problem solving, and risk-taking with the goal of learning and experimenting with how machines work and compete. Campers will learn a variety of concepts throughout this class including basic engineering principles, gearing and gear ratios, electric motors and energy, problem solving and communication skills. In addition, campers will apply their acquired knowledge in an arena where they will battle their designs. This challenges students to incorporate the traits of an engineer in a classroom setting. There is a take home project included in this course, but please note that students do not get to keep any of the LEGO ® projects they create in class. The deadline to register is May 26!
