Built by Me - STEM Learning Programs


Lego® Robotics and Coding - Amazing Engineers

Grades 1-3
Tuesday 4 - 5 pm, 1/10-2/14

This fun and interactive program focuses on coding and robotics as it introduces students to the engineering and design process using LEGO® Essential Education Robotics Construction Sets. The young engineers will work in teams of 2 building models, such as a swing and a submarine. They will define problems, brainstorm solutions, and test their prototypes to improve their ideas. Children will gain confidence and understanding as they build and explore their construction projects.

 
LEGO® Robotics and Coding - Science is our Lives (NEW)

Grades 1-3
Tuesday 4-5 PM, 2/28 - 4/11 (No class on 4/4)

Friday 4-5 PM, 3/3 - 4/14 (No class on 4/7)

This fun and interactive program centered on coding and robotics presents students with the engineering design process using LEGO® Spike Essential Education Robotics Construction Sets. Children will work in pairs on guided projects focused on the sciences - physical, life and earth & space - defining problems and brainstorming solutions as they build LEGO® prototypes simulating nature. They will develop their problem solving and team building skills as they test and refine their models, gaining confidence and understanding alone the way.

LEGO® Robotics and Coding with Scratch MIT - Crazy Carnival Games

Grades 3-5
Tuesday 5:15 - 6:15 PM, 1/10 - 2/14 

Friday 5:15 - 6:15 PM, 1/13 - 2/17

This fun and interactive program explores many aspects of STEM using LEGO® Spike Essential Education Robotics Construction Sets. Focusing on energy children will work in pairs to build prototypes, such as mini-gold course and a pinball machine. They will explore the relationship between energy and speed, and predict how energy moves from place to place. They will then code their designs with Scratch MIT, a block-based code, to perform various tasks and functions. Young engineers will broaden their understanding of energy conversion (potential and kinetic) testing solutions to improve and refine its function.

LEGO® Robotics and Coding - Science Connections (NEW)

Grades 3-5
Tuesday 5:15 - 6:15 PM, 2/28 - 4/11 (No class on 4/4)

Friday 5:15 - 6:15 PM, 3/3 - 4/14 (No class on 4/7)

This fun and interactive program explores many aspects of STEM using LEGO® Spike Essential Education Robotics Construction Sets. Focusing on earth, physical, and life science topics, children will work in pairs to build prototypes, such as a wind turbine and an earthquake simulator machine. They will explore ideas on how to protect Earth's environment and ways people understand and use the world around them. They will then code their designs with Scratch MIT, a block-based code, to perform various tasks and functions. Children will gain confidence and understanding as they build and explore their construction projects.
