Cool Projects with Lego Mindstorms (SPIKE)

For students in grades 4, 5 and 6

This program is designed for students who enjoy building with Lego technic elements, motors, and sensors. Each student will have a Lego Mindstorms kit with over 500 pieces and create projects such as a basketball shooting hoops robot, a lifting gripper, a humanoid robot, or other projects of their choice. They will connect their creation to the block programming App to make them move and react to the environment using sensors. This program will promote a challenging environment where students will develop building skills and basics of computer programming.

WHEN: Mondays from 5:20 to 6:20 pm

Lego Robotics I and II

For students in grades 4, 5 and 6

Lego Robotics I - continuation of the fall program on Thursday

Lego Robotics II - continuation of the fall program on Friday

 

This program is designed to engage students in science, engineering, robotics, and coding. Each student will 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 learning basics and advanced coding skills.

 

WHEN: Thrusdays from 5:20 to 6:20 for level I and on

Fridays from 4:10 to 5:10 for level II

 

Lego BricQ Motion

For students in grade 2 and 3                                        

This program will engage students in hands-on STEAM solutions by studying physical science and experimenting with forces, motion, and interactions. They will build projects such as Tightrope Walker, Sail Cars, Relay Race, Bobsled, Weight Lift and others.

They will investigate the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces and the cause and effect of push and pull forces. Students will develop their collaborative conversation skills, learn data analysis, and communication skills.

 

WHEN: Monday from 4:10 to 5:10

 

Lego Robotic for Grade 3

For students in grade 3

This program is designed to engage students in science, engineering, robotics, and coding. Each student will 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 and navigate a maze by avoiding obstacles. This program will promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills while learning basics and advanced coding skills.

 

WHEN: Tuesdays from 5:20 to 6:20 

Scratch Programming

For students grades 2-3

Students in this camp will create interactive stories, games, and animations using Scratch, a visual programming language developed by MIT. Students will learn to think creatively and reason systematically and learn computer programming concepts such as loops, conditional and logic operations, variables, and functions. This program will promote a challenging environment where students develop problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, and computer programming skills. 

Each student will have a computer for coding (no equipment sharing). This program is recommended for new students. 

 

WHEN: Thursday from 4:10 to 5:10

 

 

Lego WeDo and Coding Express

For students in grades K and 1

In this program, students will explore two different Lego sets: Coding Express and Lego WeDo. The Coding Express set will allow them to use computational thinking to develop designs and express ideas as they build a train and position action bricks to affect the train’s behavior. 

The Lego WeDo set is a hands-on, elementary science solution that develops science practices in the classroom through a robot-based learning system. They will use an electronic smart hub, connect it to motors and sensors, and use a drag-and-drop programming App to make their creation move.

This program will help students to become problem-solvers by enhancing their creativity, collaboration, and communication skills.

 

WHEN: Tuesdays from 4:10 to 5:10
