Coding with Lego EV3

For students in grades 3 and 4

This program introduces students to the exciting world of robotics. Each student will have a Lego EV3 robot, a 2020 MacBook Air laptop, a challenge mat, and will experiment with visual programming blocks to solve different missions on a challenge mat every day. Students will learn how to program robots to perform simple movements such as moving forward, backward, turning and using an arm to collect pieces on the challenge mat. They will use the ultrasonic, gyro and color sensors to program robots to react to the environment and make decisions. Students will be challenged to solve missions on the 2021-2022 First Lego League Game Table Mat by creating their own functions and building several Lego mechanisms.

WHEN: Wednesdays from 5:20 to 6:20

Game Design and Programming

For students grades 4, 5 and 6

 

In this camp, students will create fully functional games in just a few hours. Using intuitive icon-based software, they create their world with characters and use the built-in functions to add movements and experiment with actions. For example, they can choose how objects react when they collide with each other or when the player presses a key on the keyboard; they can program when to score or lose a life, play sounds, or use physics properties. By following simple steps on creating games, students can quickly master the basics and use their knowledge and creativity to create sophisticated games. Students will practice computer programming and reasoning skills.

WHEN: Wednesdays from 4:10 to 5:10 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 

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 

Lego WeDo 2.0

For students in grades 1 and 2

This program is designed to engage elementary students in science, technology, and engineering fields. Each student will have one Lego WeDo kit and a programming device. They will work on themed projects such as racing cars, bee pollinators, recycling trucks, and earthquake simulators. Students use motors, sensors, and a variety of mechanical elements to build, modify and program to bring their creations to life.  Students will exercise creativity, problem-solving, and critical and logical thinking while completing several hands-on activities.

WHEN: Fridays from 5:00 to 6:00 pm

VEX IQ Robotics

For students grades 6, 7 and 8

This program will engage students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). They will build a robot using the VEX IQ elements, including the touch, distance, color, gyro, and touch LED sensors. Students will learn how to program using the VEXcode IQ programming blocks to solve the VEX IQ Challenge Rise Above. The Challenge is played on a 6’ x 8’ rectangular field where robots take the field 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.
