Week 7- Ages 5 - 12


This week will have a variety of activities including Lego Robotics, Arts and Craft, Minecraft, Scratch, Coding, Indoor/Outdoor games, Sports and more.


Wheels In Motion


These wheels are ready to roll! Students will use LEGO® Bricks, axles, pulleys, gears, motors and more to build a variety of models on wheels. Some are familiar vehicles, such as a car, dragster, fire engine, train, fire truck and delivery truck. Other amazing models, such as the Rescue Robot and K-9 Bot, will give students more to learn. Do you have a need for speed? Put your Speed Bot model to the test as you race against others using remote controls ! We’ll explore concepts of speed and force, and gain non-vehicle knowledge from the unconventional Wheels in Motion models as well. Let’s roll!


Interesting Invention


Most objects we use on a daily basis were invented by someone. Find out the origins of things like the hand mixer, windshield wipers and conveyor belts. During this unit, students will discuss the difference between an invention and a discovery, learn how inventions solve problems, and find out how inventors get their ideas patented. Students are encouraged to think of what they could invent, or improvements they could make to an existing object to solve a problem. So many things we use each day are someone’s invention. Introduce your student to the world of ideas, creativity, inventions and patents. We will construct different familiar objects each week such as a hand mixer, windshield wipers and a conveyor belt. Each model is motorized for maximum movement and fascination! Start creating!


Tynker Coding Game Design


Fun can be had with coding through a computer program. It is an on-line course that teaches kids basic programming concepts through fun puzzles, games and guided activities such as animating characters, generating music or creating small games.
