Smart Bots Ages 5-7

featuring Remote-Control LEGO®-based projects!

All New Projects for 2018!

Afternoon camp (12:30-3:30pm)

Take your building skills to a new level as you make remote-controlled projects using LEGO components. Learn about gears, electric power, and motors as we create projects which move with LEGO Power Functions electronics and remotes. Projects include a ranger vehicle that races up and down ramps, a robot that moves supplies around, a hopping frog, a bulldozer that can clean-up a messy floor of bricks, and a friendly scorpion that plays soccer!

You'll control all of your creations and have them race through obstacle courses, push objects, and even play games. You'll leave with a better understanding of how to power LEGO creations, use mechanisms for movement, and how to become better at designing and solving building challenges with LEGO components.

When we're done with our remote-control projects, we'll learn about coding and giving instructions to objects and robots. From app-based games to tabletop robots, we'll explore visual coding and learn programming logic.
