Pokémon & Other Cool Creatures Ages 7-9

Robotics, Game Coding and Animation

All New Projects for 2018!

9am - 3:30pm

Build robots, create computer games, and animate virtual creatures! Begin by making and controlling creatures with the LEGO® WeDo® robotics system. Program movement using sensors, motors and software. Projects range from animals to Pokemon and fantasy creatures such as dragons.

Next, you?ll learn how to make your own computer games, such as Pokemon soccer, by using the Scratch block code programming language. Learn about loops, conditional statements and variables. Take home your games to play on a Windows or Mac computer.

We?ll end the week by making talking computer characters, from a dog to a character such as Pikachu or a Minecraft chicken. It?s called facial animation and leads to some cool and funny videos.
