Minecraft


Minecraft, a “sandbox” game by Mojang based on building blocks, has taken the world by storm as one of the top-selling PC games of all time—over 100 million people have registered worldwide. Players traverse vast landscapes of mountains, forests, caves, and various water bodies. Their characters hunt, sail, and farm while constructing homes and objects by breaking and placing textured cubes in a 3D world. It is the epitome of creativity—limitless opportunity to build, discover, and problem-solve.


In recent years, the benefits of Minecraft have come to light, with the game gaining traction as an educational tool—acknowledged by many as an important vehicle for engaging kids and teens in STEM fields such as coding, video game design and development, level design, and more.


Space Adventures


We will spend the first half of the day getting inspired by NASA and Star Wars™. Our Space Adventures Camp is packed full of models that will make your imagination blast off! Each day, campers will learn about real-life space exploration and build models related to the NASA space program. In addition, the day includes LEGO® Star Wars™ themed models, group games, challenges and more. This camp provides the spark for imagination and creativity to take off on an adventure that’s out of this world!  Curriculum is designed to be age appropriate for kiddos age 4-6 and 7-10.


EV3 Robotics


Experience the cutting edge of technology with the introduction of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robotics. Students will be captivated as they incorporate the newest generation of motors, sensors, and software by programming their commands directly into the intelligent brick.  Test their capabilities by moving an object with a robotic claw, building a robot that draws, or creating a mouse trap. Combining the versatility of the LEGO building system with the most advanced technology LEGO has ever developed, unleash the creative powers of the new LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 set to create and command robots that walk, talk, think and do anything you can imagine!
