|What's new if my child took LEGO Spybots last year?|
We have 5 new building projects in the camp, plus several new light and sound electronic projects in the afternoon.
What's different between this and the other LEGO camps?
Students in this camp create advanced LEGO projects which can be controlled with
a remote to perform a variety of moves. In the afternoon, students learn about
electronics as they build simple versions of everyday items to better understand
how they work. By comparison, the LEGO Motor Madness camp involves simpler LEGO
projects, along with an introduction to robotics. The Master Builder class
involves similar level builds, but has a game design focus in the afternoon.
What if my child has used a Snap Circuits kit before?
Our class involves a thorough introduction to electronics, using both Snap Circuits and actual electronic components. We build on the popular Snap Circuits projects with original designs and discussions to generate a deeper understanding of how each component and the entire circuit works. Students use specialty parts from the middle school Snap Circuits kits such as a relay, 7-segment LED display, meter, and remote control vehicle chassis to extend learning. Plus, students are introduced to actual electronic components, and use these along with LEGO® elements to create a really interesting electronic LEGO® projects. This prepares students for further exploration of electronics at home.
