Coding with EV3

For students in grades 4 and 5

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.

Level 1: 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.

Level 2: Students will use the ultrasonic, gyro and color sensors to program robots to react to the environment and make decisions. For example, they will use the color sensor to detect surfaces of different colors, and program the robot to follow a black line.

Level 3: Students will be challenged to solve missions on the 2020-2021 First Lego League Game Table Mat by creating their own functions and building several Lego mechanisms.

WHEN: Wednesdays from 5:15 to 6:15 (Level 3)

Intro to SPIKE Prime Robotics

For students grades 2 and 3

For students in grades 2 and 3: Each student will have a SPIKE Prime set, a 2020 Macbook air laptop, and will build and program different projects every day. Students will build using the SPIKE large motors, medium motors, sensors and other Lego elements, and use block programming to bring their creating to life.

Level 1: Hopper Race, Kiki the Dog, Grabber, and Safe Deposit Box.

Level 2: Break Dance, Sit-up Counter, Weather Forecast Machine, and Brain Game.

Level 3: Build and program a simple robot to move and use sensors to react to the environment.

WHEN: Tuesdays from 4:15 to 5:15 pm

Cool Projects with Lego EV3

For students in grades 4 and 5

This program is designed for students who want to build cool projects using Lego elements and program them to move. Each student will have a Lego Mindstorms 31313 Model with over 600 pieces, and build cool projects such as six-legged scorpion, lifting gripper, a humanoid robot, or another robot of their choice. 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 

Coding EV3 with Python

For students grades 6 and 7

This program is designed for middle school students to experiment with EV3 robots while learning and coding with Python. Each student will have a Lego EV3 robot, a 2020 Macbook air laptop, a challenge mat and will use Python programming to make their robot move and perform several tasks on the challenge mat.

Level 1: 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.

Level 2: Students will use the ultrasonic, gyro and color sensors to program robots to react to the environment and make decisions. For example, they will use the color sensor to detect surfaces of different colors, and program the robot to follow a black line.

Level 3: Students will be challenged to solve missions on the 2020-2021 First Lego League Game Table Mat by creating their own functions and building several Lego mechanisms.

WHEN: Fridays from 5:15 to 6:15 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.

 

Level 1: Milo, Racing Car, Earthquake Simulator, and Pulling 
Level 2: Bee Pollinator, Rescue Helicopter, Recycling Truck, and Preventing Food
Level 3: Moon Base, Grabbing Objects, Sending Messages, and My Own Project

VEX IQ Robotics

For students grades 6 and 7

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 6:30 to 8:00 pm 

Website and Video Editing

For students in grades 5 and 6

In this program, students will learn how to create professional-looking videos by choosing clips, then adding titles, backgrounds, transitions, music, effects and placing them over the storyboard elements. Students can use green-screen effects to place them in exotic places or create split-screen and picture-in-picture effects to act as TV reporters. They can also add built-in sound effects or record their voiceover.

Students will learn how to create webpages, screens, and interfaces, and add their finalized movies to integrate them into their customized website. They will develop skills in both design and programming.

 

WHEN: Tuesdays 6:30 to 8:00

Python Programming

For students grades 6 and 7

This program is recommended for middle school students interested in learning basic programming in Python. Python is a high-level, object-oriented, easy-to-use syntax programming language perfect for beginners. Students will be challenged to solve several mini-projects using programming concepts such as data types, variables, operators, conditional statements, and functions. Python is growing in popularity in several application fields such as machine learning, web development, automation, and other computer science areas.

WHEN: Thursdays from 5:15 to 6:15 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: Wednesdays 4:00 to 5:00
