Lego EV3 Challenges

For students in grades 3 and 4

In the program, students will use programming concepts learned from Coding with EV3 classes to solve the 2021/2022 First Lego League Cargo Connect Challenge. They will use movements blocks to make the robot navigate a 6' by 8' field, use the color sensor to follow a black line, and build several geared mechanisms to operate an arm in different directions. Students will be asked to solve several missions on the game table: home delivery, platooning trucks, closing the bridge, switch engine, unload cargo plane, unload cargo ships, airdrop packages, and avoid accident missions.

 

WHEN: Wednesdays from 5:20 to 6:20

SPIKE Prime Lego Robotics

For students grades 4 and 5

This program is designed to engage elementary school students in science, engineering, robotics, and coding. Students will build and program an autonomous robot with the SPIKE Prime LEGO set.  They will learn how to program the robot to move around and solve several challenges every day. Students will also experiment with building and programming arms to collect, transport, lift, and deposit using the coding block and color sensor. This program will promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

 

WHEN: Tuesdays from 5:20 to 6:20 pm 

Cool Projects with Lego EV3

For students in grades 4, 5 and 6

In this program, students will build cool projects using Lego elements, motors and sensors. Each student will have a Lego Mindstorms kit with over 500 pieces, and build cool projects such as shooting hoops robot, lifting gripper, a humanoid robot, or another project of their choice. They will connect their creation to the block programming App to make their project move and react to the environment with the use of sensors. This program will promote a challenging environment where students will develop problem-solving, critical thinking, and computer programming skills.

WHEN: Mondays from 5:15 to 6:15 pm 

Scratch Programming

For students in grades 2 and 3

In this program, students will learn Scratch Programming Language. They will learn the basics of computer programming by playing fun puzzles, creating games, animations, and drawings while experimenting with mulitple elements. Students will learn computer programming concepts such as loops, conditional and logic operations, variables, and functions in a fun, interactive, and creative environment. This program will promote a challenging environment where students will develop problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, teamwork, and computer programming skills.

 

WHEN: Thursday from 5:20 to 6:20 pm 

FLL Explore (*by invitation only)

For students in grades 1, 2 and 3

In this program, students will work with the Lego WeDo kit to build and code a themed-based project. They will be engaged in engineering and coding, and work collaboratively to solve the 2021 and 2022 FLL Explore Challenge. Teams will explore the future of transportation. From the shipment of packages in rural and urban areas, to disaster relief delivery and high-tech air transit, teams will re-imagine faster, more reliable, inclusive, and sustainable transportation innovations that better connect and grow communities and economies around the world.

By the end of the season, teams present their solution by presenting their lego model at an FLL Expo Event. 

 

WHEN: Fridays from 5:00 to 6:00 pm

VEX IQ Robotics

For students grades 6, 7 and 8

In this program, students will apply the building &  programming concepts learned from the basic VEX IQ classes to solve the 2022 VEX IQ Pitching In Challenge. They will build a robot that can move around the  6’ x 8’ rectangular field using sensors for navigation and arm control. They will create a strategy and program robots to score as many points as possible. Each student will have a VEX IQ super kit with over 800 pieces and a Mac Pro computer to create codes.

 

WHEN: Mondays from 4:10 to 5:10 pm 

Python Programming

For students grades 6, 7 and 8

This program is recommended for middle school students interested in learning basic and advanced programming in Python. Students will start by learning variables and how to  input and output data. They will be challenged to solve several exercises by using data types, operators, conditional statements, and functions. Students will learn how to operate with lists, libraries, classes and method to create a final game with animated background and players and multiple levels.

 

WHEN: Tuesdays from 5:20 to 6:20 pm 

Fundamentals of STEM with VEX GO

For students in grades 2 and 3

In this program, students will learn the fundamentals of STEM through fun, hands-on activities using the VEQ GO kit. Each student will have one kit with motors, sensors, and over a hundred pieces to bring their creation to life. They will also learn how to use the block-based App to code their projects to move. STEM Lessons will include the creation of a chain reaction machine, a maze for marbles, lunar rover, spirograph, fish for multiplication facts, ramp races, and others. This program promotes creativity and collaboration while exploring patterns and logical thinking.

WHEN: Thursdays 5:20 to 6:20

Kinder Robotics

For students in Kindergarten

This program will engage students in investigating and understanding the operation of simple machines such as gears, wheels and axles, levers, and pulleys to introduce kids to science and engineering concepts. They will build pinwheels, spinning tops, car launchers, hockey players, and other projects while exploring motion, energy, stability, forces and friction concepts.

WHEN: Thursday from 4:10 to 5:10 pm
