What's Included

This camp is for the younger LEGO fan that is just getting into LEGO. JRS will learn basic building techniques, play building oriented games, and create from their own imagination. Projects like building racecars, animals, mosaics are few of the things the children will work on. Action LEGO's puts fun in motion as students learn how to use gears, motors, potential energy and balance to create numerous contraptions. Through the excitement of building, our summer camp students understand how gears translate motion and how different types of energy can propel vehicles and machines. After each building project, summer camp kids customize, share, and enjoy playing with their creations. Kids have many opportunities free building, playing Lego games creating their own amazing projects. We are focused on active learning because the development of the brain is so important in the early years and research proves that children learn by “doing”. We have a unique ability to excite and motivate kids to grasp programming and engineering concepts, yet we also place equal emphasis on celebrating STEM education and creativity. In the summer of 2015, we have some new programs including a hands-on building section as well as activities that offer an opportunity for kids to play outside.

Camps Offered in Summer 2015:

 

 

  1. Lego Action Jrs. – for the younger group of builders who are starting to build and can complete simple projects either by following instructions or by constructing their own creations using their own creativity.

  2. Lego Robotics- for campers who want to take their love of Lego’s to the next level. Campers build as many as 20 models or more and then program their models on a laptop to move and make noises. Campers can move on to learn to construct robots of their own design and program them. Campers have a choice of building from hundreds of sets too, playing Lego Games or free building and construction.

  3.  Lego Robotics/Scratch- for campers that love to build with Lego’s and would love to use a fun programming environment called Scratch to make animations and games. No prior experience is necessary. Campers also experienced with Scratch are included in this camp since both Lego’s and Scratch are both very open-ended projects. Our staff works with every camper to take him/her to the next level no matter what his/ her beginning point may be.

  4. American Girl – for the girl that loves American Girl books and dolls. Campers bring their dolls. However, we do much more than play with dolls. Sewing, art, jewelry making, fashion design and singing, dance and writing are just some of the activities.
