9am - 3:30pm
Learn about circuits, engineering and robotics as you design LEGO-scale creations with a Disney Park theme. Build and power a Racers car, monorail train, motorized elephant, teacup thrill ride, and locomotive. You’ll power the LEGO creations with Circuit Cubes®, electronic components such as a battery, motor, light and switch which you build into your designs. You’ll see how to create the circuits that will power your LEGO creations!
In the afternoon, we’ll explore robotics using Ozobots, programmable line-following robots. Students learn about color-sensing robots and program their actions with color-code instruction stickers. Students program the tiny bots to perform simulated missions - from Mars rover tasks to a programmed ride through a Disneyland-type park. Students also design their own mazes, challenges, and attachments with LEGO elements. Ozobots is a great tool for thinking about problem-solving as well as learning the concept of coding through creative color-coding instructions.
We’ll finish with an engineering focus by using the K’NEX construction system to build structures and mechanical f/x with an imagineering focus. Design a castle with a working drawbridge, a haunted mansion with a spinning “ghost”, and more!
