Robotizens: Fall 2015
Our Robotizens program offers an opportunity to study construction methods, principles of physics and science and basic concepts of engineering. Some of these projects draw from everyday life concepts and provide knowledge on connected systems, motorized machines, levers, gears, pulleys, speed/torque, stress testing, and more. Students work in small teams and build a variety of robot projects using LEGO Robotics Kits and LEGO Mindstorm sets. The students will learn how to program the robots to perform tasks, use sensors, and solve a series of fun challenges. Robotizens is lots of fun, excitement, creativity and learning all wrapped into one!

Young Scientists© - Fun with Simple Machines
This is an excellent way to introduce budding builders to key simple machines concepts while building teamwork and communication skills. Elementary students will discover basic physical science models such as gears, pulleys, levers, wheels and axles through observation, prediction, reasoning, and critical thinking. These sessions are an excellent precursor to the NXT Robotics program (offered in Spring), giving students the basic building skills and real world engineering designs needed to flourish in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). No previous experience is required.
