Optimized-LeadersCreative Green City Planner Series: I, II, & III

Building a green city takes skill as well as creativity. Using Lego Robotic kits, students undergo a simulation of city planning and energy production which brings to life classroom concepts of math and science. Challenges during the simulation will teach participants to pivot on their thinking capacities, work with their groupmates to brainstorm solutions, and consider multiple methods of problem solving. The curriculum concept of this series is to cultivate divergent thinking through knowledge integration and application.

The curriculum of the above camps are non-repeating and non-sequential.

Machine & Mechanism Series

Learn about motorized machines, gearing mechanisms, and the principles of math and science related to these concepts. These fundamental ideas are meant to be a starting point for young students to investigate the basics of engineering. Students will experiment under different scenarios to bring these concepts to life using their Lego Robotic Kits in a fun and engaging manner.

Motion & Speed: 6/24-6/28, M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Robotic Advanced Motion I: 6/24-6/28, M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Robotic Advanced Motion II: 7/15-7/19, M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Forces, Equilibrium & More: 7/15-7/19, M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

First Lego League Training

First Lego League Training is NOT the official First Lego League.  Rather it is a readiness course for those who may be considering participating FLL in the near future.  This training camp is structured and designed for those student who are most interested in application and problem solving.  Good candidates are those who have previous experience in Lego workshops and have already constructed a challenging model on their own.  The emphasis here is more on problem solving and having a model perform a series of tasks than on making a complex model itself. Students will be challenged to research, investigate, and instruct the model to complete a list of designated tasks.

First Lego League Training I: 7/29-8/2, M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

First Lego League Training II: 8/12-8/16, M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
