Master Builders: Advanced LEGOŽ Building and Game Design
For Ages 7-9 - NEW PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES each year!
Build robotic vehicles and machines that use the LEGOŽ Scout microcomputer and its built-in programs. Projects include an airboat, ATV with front drill, a motorized car which you steer, a solar vehicle, and an amusement park thrill ride!
Use motors, gears, solar panels, touch sensors and lots of
other unique pieces. Run your creations to move forward, respond to light
or collisions, or move in random ways.
In the afternoon, students create their own adventure
computer game using Stagecast software. Students can use LEGO characters, bricks,
and vehicles in their game or choose from hundreds of other graphics! Campers
take home their game to play at home!
Students take home the following: Cool Camp T-shirt and
LEGO item, plus their game to play at home!. Note that students do not take home
the LEGO projects and pieces from the class.
What's new if my child has taken a
LEGO Master Builders class last year?
We have five new building projects in the camp, all with a number of special elements and gears. We also have a new Friday afternoon event where students join teams to try LEGO and skill challenges!
What's different between this and the other LEGO camps?
Students in this Master Builders class create advanced LEGO projects,
all which use the Scout microcomputer brick in them. Projects include use of
motors, lights, a touch sensor, and even a solar panel. Afternoon time involves
computer game design. By comparison, the LEGO Motor Madness camp involves simpler
projects, and an introduction to NXT robotics.The Extreme-tronics and LEGO Action camps focus on remote-controlled LEGO
projects, and either electronics or stop motion animation in the afternoons.
This class for Summer 2013 is being held at the locations below:
