Learn mechanical & software engineering skills, teamwork, and problem solving through fun challenges and LEGO® building. Using LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime and WeDo 2.0™ to inspire the next generation of engineers.  We offer themed robotics days such as Robots At The Zoo and Robots At The Circus. We also offer FIRST® LEGO® League Experience programs, providing a crash course on competition robot strategies, engineering, and coding.

FLL Experience

Full day workshop OR 9-week term; Explorers, Innovators; Beginner, Intermediete, Advanced

A taster program for the FIRST Lego League Challenge! This program has three components: Robot Game, Innovation Project, and Core Values. Teams of participants will work together to design, build, and program a robot to complete Lego mission models around a challenge field. At the end of the program, teams will hold a tournament to display their achievements throughout the term. Teams will also come up with an innovative solution to solve a problem identified in their world, and learn to share their ideas with their community. Students will learn and apply a wide range of STEM skills, including problem solving, critical thinking, and creative design

Hackathons

Full day workshop; Explorers, Innovators; All Levels

Discover and innovate! Using the design process thinking model, participants learn to identify problems, research and design a solution, and pitch their ideas to a group. Creativity, problem solving, presentation skills and lots of fun!

Girls In STEAM

Full day workshop OR 9-week term; Explorers, Innovators; Beginner, Intermediete, Advanced
