We have just added two new Robotics classes to the enrichment class schedule for Winter session. These classes will be offered on Wednesdays and taught by BEAM Experiences/Bricks4Kidz (beamexperiences.com).
- Jr Robotics K-2 (Wednesdays, 1:15 – 2:30 PM, $235/session – 9 classes): BEAM Experiences uses the popular Bricks 4 Kidz Jr. Robotics curriculum, teaching students how to turn their next LEGO creations into a robot, programmed to do exactly what they tell it to do! This offers all the fun of building with LEGO Bricks, plus the challenge of computer programming. Using drag-and-drop, icon-based WeDo software provides an introduction to the world of programming and robotics that will equip children to succeed in a technology-based marketplace. BEAM encourages students to think creatively while experimenting with Cubelets. This fun, action-packed class combines real life skills with real kid fun! Class limit: 10.
- Robotics 3-5 (Wednesdays, 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM, $235/session – 9 classes) : Unleash the creative powers of the hands-on LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3 by building robots that can race, dodge walls, and complete obstacle courses! The aim of this course is to have students utilize their critical and creative thinking skills by building robots that they design and program. Students will physically piece together logic with modular building blocks, build circuits, and discover how robotic creations operate in today’s world. Although this course heavily uses Mindstorms EV3, students will learn how a variety of robots are built using the latest cutting-edge systems. Class limit: 10.
Enrollment for these classes will open tomorrow (Thursday, 12/13) at 9 AM. The enrollment deadline for these classes will be extended to 12/21 at 5 PM.
