Become a master superhero builder as we create LEGO vehicles, structures and machines that will help defeat the arch enemy villains.  Using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) principles students will engineer ways to protect themselves by constructing super hero cars, magnetic levitation trains, super hero lasers and more! Students will use gears and motors to learn about mechanical devices such as levers, magnets, wheels and axles.

Super Hero Master Builder and Stop Motion Animation                                                                    Ages 6-9

Become a master superhero builder as we create LEGO vehicles, structures and machines that will help defeat the arch enemy villains.  Using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) principles students will engineer ways to protect themselves by constructing super hero cars, magnet levitation trains, magnetic cranes, and more! Students will use gears and motors to learn about mechanical devices such as levers, magnets, wheel and axles. Help save the day from the arch enemy villains.

In the afternoon, students will build their own mini movie set and create an animated movie using LEGO mini figures and other objects. The students will also learn how to edit their movies and add titles/credits using Professional Stop Animation software

 

EV3 Battle Bots with Super Heroes, Villains and Stop Animation/Mine-craft                            Ages 9-14

Come and join us as we build Super Hero bots that can defeat the arch villain.  In this class students will learn how gears can create awesome speed and power.  We will create bots that will engage in tug of wars, battle villain bots and pull fifty pounds!

Children will apply the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) principles and build several versions of EV3 robots and battle villain bots. The students will learn to examine situations and calculate various solutions to discover ways to solve these missions. They will learn C-based programming and use problem-solving skills to help the robots solve the different challenges. Students will use mine craft to build super hero lairs that are filled with traps and defenses to pro¬tect them from arch evil villains. They will learn how to use Command Blocks/Red¬stone to create traps and other defenses.

In the afternoon, students will build their own mini movie set and create an animated movie using LEGO mini figures and other objects. The students will also learn how to edit their movies and add music, narration and titles using Professional Stop Animation software.
