2023 Summer Programs

About Our Summer Programs

Our camps are one week long, and each class lasts six hours. We offer various programs for children of all ages to ensure that everyone learns something engaging and age-appropriate.

During the week, kids will work in small groups. Our teachers will lead the groups in guided STEM-related building projects. During STEM builds, kids will experience the engineering process of designing, building, testing, and modifying their creations. They’ll encounter obstacles and have to think critically to overcome them with their builds. Our dedicated teachers are there every step of the way, helping kids discover their passion. Each day of camp offers something new and exciting. By the end of the week, your child will have participated in activities that stimulate creativity and passion for discovery! Each of our LEGO building projects encourages creativity and teamwork. Our classes range from structured group builds to free building time. By the end of the week, we’ll have done a little bit of everything!

Summer Program Descriptions

Motorized LEGO Brick Creations:

Ages 4-5, Half Day $195

Our 4 to 5 programs are the perfect way to introduce your child to STEM-based principles while having fun and building with LEGO bricks! Each day students will learn STEM-based concepts that correlate with the build they are creating using axles, gears, motors, and battery packs. Students will follow the teacher’s instructions, step by step, to assemble their creations. Once their build is complete, students will have time to modify and experiment with their LEGO brick creation any way they would like!

 

PLEASE NOTE: Any programs listed as WK1 or WK2 are interchangeable and the lessons, builds, and curriculum will differ. You are NOT required to register for week one (WK1) to participate in and understand week two (WK2) and vice versa.

Stop-motion LEGO set

LEGO Master Engineers and Stop Animation:

Ages 6-8, Week 1 Full Day 9-3 $375

Become a master superhero builder as we create LEGO vehicles, structures, and machines. Students will use STEM principles to build superhero cars, magnet levitation trains, pulleys, and more! Students will use gears and motors to learn about mechanical devices such as levers, magnets, wheels, and axles. In the afternoon, students will build their own mini movie set, learn the parts of a story and create an animated movie using LEGO mini figures and other objects. The students will also learn how to edit their films, attach music, and add titles/credits using Professional Stop Animation software.

Build, Modify, Code LEGO Motorized Cars and Stop Motion Animation:

Ages 6-8, Week 2

Join us as we race into the world of CARS and learn how to create, build, and modify motorized LEGO brick machines! Before each LEGO brick creation, staff will discuss key engineering and physics concepts with the children and how they relate to our builds. Students will build LEGO brick cars using axles, gears, pulleys, battery packs, and motors. In addition, children will code their LEGO builds using a drag-and-drop-based interface using Bluetooth technology. In the afternoon, students will create their own mini movie set, learn the parts of a story and create an animated movie using LEGO mini figures and other objects. The students will also learn how to edit their films, attach music, and add titles/credits using Professional Stop Animation software.

Minecraft Missions, Stop Motion Animation & Minecraft:

Ages 9-13, Week 1

Join us as we design, build, and program robots that interact, perform complex tasks and respond to challenges. Students will use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 motors, sensors, and gears to enhance their robotics skills by completing missions within the Minecraft World. Come all Minecrafters and help us a battle and defeat the Enderman! Dur­ing the after­noon students will cre­ate their very own LEGO Stop Ani­ma­tions. 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 films, add sound and add titles/credits using Professional Stop Animation software. During the afternoon, children will use Minecraft to complete tasks such as building mazes filled with traps and defenses to protect them from arch enemies. They will learn to use Command Blocks and Redstone to create traps and other obstacles. In the afternoon, children will have the opportunity to produce their own LEGO stop-motion animation. They will be able to build their own movie sets and write plots with LEGO mini figures and other LEGO bricks, using professional stop-motion animation software.
