VEX IQ Team

For students grades 7 and 8

In this program, students will work as a team to compete in the 2022-2023 VEX IQ Competiton Slapshot Event. They will create a strategy, and build and program VEX robot to score as many points as possible on the field. Students will be encoraged to build and test several designs, test for robustness, accuracy and speed, and modify deisgn as needed. They will also experiment  coding with sensors to make navigation more accurate.

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 5:20 to 6:20 pm 

Lego Robotics

For students in grades 5 and 6

This program is designed to engage students in science, engineering, robotics, and coding. Each student will build and program an autonomous robot and solve different challenges every day. They will experiment with building and programming arms to collect, transport, lift, and deposit items to different locations. Students will also learn how to use sensors to detect color, line following and navigate a maze by avoiding obstacles. This program will promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills while promoting teamwork.

 

WHEN: Tuesdays from 4:10 to 5:10

Scratch Programming II

For students grades 3 and 4

Students in this camp will be exposed to Scratch, a visual programming language that allows students to create their own interactive stories, games and animations. As students design Scratch projects, they learn to think creatively and reason systematically.  They will learn computer programming concepts such as loops, conditional and logic operations, variables, and functions. This program will promote a challenging environment where students will develop problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and computer programming skills.

 

WHEN: Tuesdays from 5:20 to 6:20 pm 

Game Design and Programming II

For students grades 5 and 6

In this camp, students will create fully functional games in just a few hours. Using an intuitive icon-based environment, they create their own world with characters, and use the built-in functions to add movements and  animation. For example, students can choose how objects react when they collide with each other or when the player presses a key on the keyboard; they can change the direction of a character when it reaches a boundary, they can program when to score or lose a life, play sounds, or use physics properties.  By following simple steps on how to create games, even beginner students can quickly master the basics and use their knowledge and creativity to create sophisticated gaming environments.

 

When: Wednesday 4:10 to 5:10

STEM with SPIKE Prime Essential

For students in grades 3 and 4

This program is designed for elementary school students to engage them in hands-on experiments with the new SPIKE Prime Essential Lego Set. They will learn concepts of STEM while using motors, sensors and lego elements to solve challenges. Students will use the Lego Spike Essential App to experiment with block-based coding based on Scratch and develop coding proficiency.This program will promote a challenging environment where students will develop problem-solving, critical thinking, and computer programming skills.

 

WHEN: Wednesday 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: Thursday 5:20 to 6:20

 

FLL Explore

For students in grades 2 and 3

FIRST LEGO League Explore introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through fun, exciting hands-on learning. Students will study a real-world problem and propose a solution through a guided, global robotics program. They will build a Lego Model using motors and sensor that represent their solution.

This program inspires youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.

 

WHEN: Fridays 5:00 to 6:00

Lego WeDo

For students in grades K and 1

This program is designed to engage 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: Thursdays 4:10 to 5:10
